Telephone cooperatives are a living example of democracy in action. The subscribers/members actually own the company and elect a board of directors that sets policy to represent members’ interests and ensure the company’s success. To do that, board members must be knowledgeable about the cooperative and the evolving telecommunications industry, telco management, state and federal regulation, the competitive environment, and the company’s long-range plans and future prospects. Equally important, directors must communicate that understanding to management and subscribers, and develop the relationships essential to succeed in an indispensable, multibillion-dollar business.
S&T Telephone's members are those telecommunication subscribers located in our ILEC exchanges of Brewster, Dighton, Grinnell, Healy, Kanorado, Levant, Menlo, Russell Springs, and Winona.
