The Broadband Association of North Dakota is a trade organization representing both cooperative and commercial telephone companies serving rural North Dakota. Members of the Association provide telephone service to over 158,000 subscribers in every county in North Dakota while maintaining approximately 50,000 miles of line.
To better serve these customers the Association was formed in 1966 to safeguard the interests of member cooperatives through consumer awareness, legislative information services, public information, and education. Our members and customers believe telephone cooperatives and rural commercial companies are essential to economic and viable communication services in rural areas.
The bylaws of the Broadband Association of North Dakota allow suppliers of goods and services to the rural telephone industry to become supporting associate members of the Association. The issues that face our industry require a concerted and cohesive effort on behalf of all the members of our industry. The supporting membership in BAND allows you to become involved in our effort.
Supporting associate membership dues are $100 annually. Membership includes copies of our regular newsletter, legislative update, a directory, and provides for attendance at Association functions.
We hope you will join us as a supporting associate member. Please complete and submit the Membership Application. This will assure that you will receive our mailings in a timely manner.
