Thank You Members—DMEA Spotlighted at National Level!

10:47AM May 30, 2017

Elevate Fiber and DMEA are excited to announce that our fiber internet build project was recognized at the 2017 CONNECT Conference put on by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). Our project efforts took home the highest honor possible—2017 Edgar F. Chesnutt Award, a part of the Spotlight on Excellence Awards Program.

Most importantly, this award would not have been possible without the support of our membership, so thank you. Elevate Fiber was brought to life because of our members’ needs for faster and more reliable internet service. As we have said before, you asked, and we listened. Elevate was launched almost a year ago at the 2016 Annual Meeting of Members in Montrose. Over these short 12 months, DMEA, Elevate, and all our amazing members have created something so much more than just an internet solution for our area. We have thrived together; supported each other; put on events and raised awareness to get people engaged. Without all our members being active and asking questions—we would not be where we are today. So, again, thank you members.

“This award reinforces the important work we are doing in our communities. Our members have a need and we are here to deliver, just like we did with electricity years ago. Thank you to our members and board for their continued support of this monumental project.” mentioned Jasen Bronec, CEO at DMEA, after taking home the award.

DMEA’s team and the Elevate Fiber project were spotlighted at the CONNECT Conference back in early May and we wanted to share the success and thank every one of our members.
