Board of Trustees

  

Pioneer Telephone Cooperative, Inc., is directed by a Board of Trustees, 12 of whom represent each of the Cooperative's 12 Districts, plus one Member-At-Large. Board members are successful, well-respected leaders in their districts and because they are elected to office, they are true representatives of a cooperative member. This structure results not only in excellent public relations, but also provides the foundation for a solid relationship with Management.
