Greg Rogers announced today his bid for re-election as a member of DTC Communications' Board of Directors, representing the Woodbury exchange. Rogers has served in this position for the past nine years. For seven of those nine years, he has served as Secretary to the Board.
During this time the cooperative has been faced with changes affecting all aspects of the communication business. "From dealing with revenue loss due to declining land lines to major wireless enhancements, we've had our hands full," Rogers states. "Understanding the issues and making "business minded" decisions has been my approach. We must be equipped with the knowledge to make the most effective decisions," he concludes. This knowledge base will come from being engaged and learning from industry courses provided through the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association. Rogers has recently completed the course work necessary to earn the NTCA's Director Core Curriculum Certificate, which is a 14 credit course including 4 areas of study-Policy, Technology, Business and Governance.
In conclusion, Rogers states, "Even though we live in a much different communications world, our cooperative continues to be a very important part of our rural lives. Serving DTC, in the capacity of Director, is an honor, one I wish to continue. I thank you for the past opportunity and ask for your continued trust, vote and support in this election".
Greg and his wife Lisa live in Woodbury. They have two grown children, Wes Rogers and Erin Emlen and a grandson, Eli Rogers. Greg is President/CEO of Bird Song Adhesives, Inc., a 30 year member of the Woodbury Lions Club and serves as a Deacon at the Woodbury Church of Christ.
