WITA WORKS - June 29, 2017
This year’s annual meeting was full of information and smiles. After over a year of debate about the purpose and history of the Pioneer Award it was decided that this award should be only be given out to someone who had not only been a pioneer in the telecommunications industry but who still exemplified that pioneer spirit today. It is no longer an annual award and there was no recipient last year. However, this year the Nominations Committee quickly decided that the obvious recipient was someone who had both the guts and foresight to move his company forward during these uncertain times. Thanks to Dale Merten the town of Toledo is now a “gigabit city” with fiber to every premises. Dale has also been a pioneer at the federal level, working to advance rural telecommunications issues at every opportunity. WITA was proud to present Dale with the Pioneer Award.
WITA All Stars!
Throughout WITA there are a number of individuals who contribute extra time to supporting and promoting issues of importance to all our member companies. They testify at hearings, hold meetings with legislators in their offices, give tours to visiting officials and provide resources such as data and detailed comments that can be used in handouts and presentations. To acknowledge those individuals the Nominating Committee brought back the WITA All Star Award. Anyone may nominate an individual who fits this description. This year there were three nominations for the WITA All Star award. It went to Mike Oblizalo who has spent many hours giving tours, providing data and meeting with legislators on issues that affect all WITA companies. Thank you for all you do Mike!
