New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 7, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas
Wednesday, June 7,1995 ■ Herald-Zeitung ■ aGVTC to refund more than $3.5 million to members
Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative, Inc. will return over THREE & ONE HALF MILLION DOLLARS to its member-owners.
As a cooperative, profits not needed to maintain and operate the co-op are allocated back to the member-owners. So, once again, the members of GVTC can say, “It pays to be ‘Owned by Those it Serves.’”
This year’s distribution of capital credits will begin at GVTC’s 40th Annual Membership Meeting to be held at the New Braunfels Civic Center on Wednesday, June 28.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m.
with registration beginning at 5 p.m. Mr. Curtis Bremer, chairman of the board, will report on the financial condition of the co-op for the year ending Dec. 31, 1994. GVTC’s annual meeting fills the N.B. Civic Center so plan to get there early.
Five directors will be elected to the board. Capital Credit checks cannot be picked up from any of GVTC’s officers—there are simply too many checks for employees to distribute during work hours.
Checks not picked up at the 40th annual membership meeting on June 28 will be mailed out within the week.
GVTC’s headquarters facility is located in rural Comal County, 17 miles west of New Braunfels with two brand) offices, one located in Boerne, and the other in Cost, near Gonzales. Its wholly owned subsidiary, Guadalupe Valley Communications Systems, Inc. provides a cellular phone division, a cable TV division, a security alarm and monitoring division, a special construction service division, and a data processing service division.
The GVTC story began in the early 1950s with a vision by its founders, rural families living in a sparsely populated area with rough and rocky ter
rain, who desired telephone service. Because of the hard work, determination, dedication, and pioneering spirit of these founding families, member-owned GVTC became a reality.
Today, GVTC has become a multimillion dollar telecommunications corporation providing state-of-the-art telephone service to over 22,000 customers.
GVTC employees and the board of directors take pride in working for you and GVTC. Without you, the customer, GVTC could not have grown to the tremendous co-op it is today.
