2014 Recognition Awards

 

Celebrate With Us

The NTCA Retirement and Service Recognition Award recognizes managers, employees, officers and directors who have given 15 or more years of service to your company, as well as those who are retiring.

These awards are presented at the regional awards luncheon, so that your region may pay tribute to the people who dedicated so many years to rural telephony. In addition, their names will be printed in the program. NTCA is pleased to honor these individuals for their contributions to your telco, to NTCA and to the industry.

There are four types of awards:

Retirement Recognition…for individuals retiring in 2014.

Service Recognition…for individuals who have served your company for 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years.

25-year NTCA Members… for telcos that have belonged to NTCA for 25 years as of 2014.

Century Club Award…This award recognizes telcos celebrating 100 years of providing quality, cutting-edge telecommunications services. There is no charge for the Century Club award. This is our small way of congratulating you and your company in celebrating 100 years of service.

Order your awards to pay tribute to those who will be in attendance of the regional meeting and have dedicated 15 or more years of service to your company, as well as those planning to retire in 2014. 

 

To recognize the years of service and retirement of individuals who are unable to attend the awards luncheon, not to worry; service recognition and retirement awards may be ordered year round via NTCA’s online Merchandise Mart. The Merchandise Mart’s timely shipping allows you to present your honorees with their awards from the comfort of your hometown at any of your company’s functions or events!

 Please feel free to contact our membership services department at membership@ntca.org with any questions.

 

We look forward to seeing you at this year's regional meeting,
and hope you will join us at the regional awards luncheon.
