Our membership provides great value for our organization by leveraging industry expertise and legislative advocacy that would otherwise be unobtainable for a system our size. The work performed by the Association at the federal level has saved our Telecommunications Division hundreds of thousands—and likely millions—of dollars by protecting our $80M infrastructure investment against rate regulation, unwieldly battery backup costs, and onerous reporting requirements.
