Things are moving fast. We need board authorization to enter a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Consolidated Communications Inc (CCI). We reached out to CCI to see if there are areas where our goals overlap; our goal of reaching the under-served; their goals post-RDOF. They want an NDA in place before entering those discussions. The NDA itself is confidential and will be distributed separately to reps and alts only.

We are overdue to have liability insurance in place. We plan to distribute info Monday and seek approval to purchase on Wednesday.

Personal from Tim Scoggins: The next few months have the potential to shape the trajectory of SoVT CUD in large measure. I stated at our last meeting that my personal situation has changed and I would not seek re-election as chair in May. I now believe SoVT CUD is best served by electing a new chair sooner, at our next regular meeting on 3 March. I endorse Jeff Such for that job. Nominations will be taken from the floor.
