Cooperatives are founded on unique and proven business values that put people before profits. These core values include honesty, openness, democracy, and social responsibilities.
As a customer of a cooperative, you become an owner, too. The cooperative business philosophy opens the door of opportunity to all members to an active role in the business. Cooperatives allow you to voice your concerns at annual meetings and to run for the board of directors. The “one member, one vote” philosophy gives all members an equal voice.
Cooperatives are organized for many reasons, including:
Many cooperatives are consumer-owned, providing their members with a wide range of goods or services such as health care, utilities, housing, and hardware. These co-ops include rural electric and telecommunications cooperatives and credit unions.

As a part owner in a telephone cooperative, you are entitled to benefits that are not available to customers of private or big name telephone companies. These benefits include:
If you do move to an area outside of our service area, your membership status is cancelled, and any capital credits earned will remain with the cooperative until they are retired. It is the former member’s responsibility to notify us of any address changes.
