1 Marvin Kelly Johnson, General Manager/CEO Lost Nation Elwood Telephone Company Lost Nation, IA title, and any previous relevant work experience. Please include dates of service. My current job title is General Manager / CEO of The Lost Nation Elwood Telephone Company. I have been employed here since March of While I am new to Iowa, I have been involved in the telecommunications industry for over 20 years. The majority of my experience was gained while working as Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Pioneer Communications in Ulysses, Ks. (2/1992 3/2012). During this time, I was privileged to create the first commercial Internet Service provider in Kansas and to assist other independent telephone companies with their own offerings. I was able to lead a team of 23 employees through a wide variety of technologies, which included dial- up services, cable models, the whole alphabet of DSL offerings, and finally FTTP. At this time I am involved with several areas of the ITA, including the Industry Relations Committee, the Tariff Committee, and an ad hoc committee that is researching the feasibility of an economic study regarding the impact of the National Broadband plan in Iowa. I also served on the technical advisory board during the creation of KanEd, which is a statewide private network for schools, hospitals and libraries throughout Kansas. This venture was a collaboration of various communications providers, working together to bring affordable data and video services to all areas in Kansas (rural and urban). Once this service was operational, I remained on the board providing input for the independent telephone industry. In I worked with CadTel as the technical consultant for their GIS Mapping software, designed for the telephone industry. Besides being the General Manager / CEO for Lost Nation Elwood, I am also on the WAPSI board of directors. WAPSI is the formal name for the collaboration of seven telephone companies in Eastern Iowa that have banded together to provide wireless telecommunications and data services. Recently I have been appointed to the Dual Party Relay Counsel for the Iowa Utilities Board. Although I have limited experience in this area, I look forward to serving with others and assisting to the best of my ability. I have no predefined agenda or purpose for my involvement with any organization. I can see the value of the ITA and understand that any organization is only as strong as its members. It is my goal to utilize my knowledge, talents, and ideas to promote and enhance the strength of Iowa Telecommunications. The telecommunications industry is facing issues that are different from any other time in history. Instead of technical or physical challenges, we now must wake up wondering what will happen on the regulatory and legislative horizon. The ITA is comprised of the smartest and most experienced telecommunications executives and consultants available. My goal is to be able to learn, as well as to offer my viewpoint; hopefully allowing all companies to advance through effective and directed cooperation. As previously stated, I worked as the CIO of Pioneer Communications for many years. It was during this time that I saw how critical the use of technology was to our members. Technology is of no use if everyday people cannot use it. This experience allowed me to look past the pretty blinking lights and watch an elderly woman s face light up as she received her first from a grandchild. I personally feel that the survival of rural telecommunications is not only in offering broadband, but a unique style of personal broadband that our customers can utilize. We have to exploit our strengths and since we reach into everyone s home already, we can give them service unlike anyone else. I feel that my experience with information technology and broadband product offerings would be advantageous as an ITA director. Just as important as a technical background, I enjoy talking to people about the causes that are important to rural customers. Local telephone companies provide a massive amount of support for their communities and historically we were content to sit in the background without any fanfare. Now that our revenue streams are being threatened, it is time to become cheerleaders for our own companies. Our customers, businesses, and political leaders must understand the economic stimulus we provide to our service areas. It is difficult to project this as no one seems to know where the industry will be in three years. There is no doubt that the ITA will remain proactive for Iowa Telecommunications and constantly examine avenues to expand revenue streams. As a new face in Iowa, I have had the opportunity to see the unique strength that is formed through the unity of all members. It is my concept that the ITA should provide ideas, training and opportunities for collaboration. It should never be the goal of the ITA to provide a single cookie cutter approach, but to provide different options and opportunities that each company can pick and choose from to create their own recipe for success.

To look for new opportunities through education and collaboration with its members.

I believe I have a strong technical background in a variety of services and products (from Central Office, Outside Plant, ADSL & VDSL, FTTH, Fixed Wireless, CATV & H.E.) with the ability to explain them in a manner that others (policy makers) can understand. On the forefront of the Telecommunications industry, honoring the past while paving the way to the future.

I have worked for both a Cooperative and a Commercial company and understand the unique needs of each. In three years I see ITA continuing its pursuit of being the premier communications association in the Midwest. Training should evolve to continue to match the needs of our membership. ITA should continue improving its relationship with the IUB and legislators. ITA should increase its relationships with other rural associations in an effort to better represent the unique needs of our rural members through partnerships.

4 Donald Jennings, Executive Vice President Partner Communications Cooperative title, and any previous relevant work experience. Please include 1985 Present Executive Vice President, Partner Communications Cooperative Responsibilities: Manage and direct daily operations provide leadership and planning to the Board of Directors, present financial statements and operations report each month. Member relations, by-monthly newsletter, present Manager s Report to the Annual Meeting each March General Manager, Readlyn Telephone Company Responsibilities: Managed the daily operations. Served as the primary technician for installation and maintenance of switching, and outside plant, equipment. Managed build out of the local coax CATV system Installer/Repairer, Dunkerton Telephone Company Responsibilities: Installer/Repairer for Outside Plant installation and maintenance. Assisted with general office and monthly bill processing Present Iowa Telecommunications Association Board - Director ITA-RIITA PR Committee, ITA Finance Committee, Marketing Committee, Broadband Council, NBP Taskforce RIITA Board - President (1999) RIITA Legislative Committee Chairman, Present NTCA Iowa TECO Director (Political Action Committee NTCA Marketing Committee Served as a member and officer on Local development Groups, Lions Club, Jaycees, Little League Committee, Fun Days Committee, Booster Club, Marshall County Republican Committee, etc Here are some objectives I have: 1. Assist the industry in formulating strategies for replacing revenues for a pathway forward through the FCC Transition Order so we can maintain our tradition of strong community based telecommunications companies with affordable rates and quality services. 2. Assist in the unification of the Rural Telecom Industry Associations so as to communicate a strong unified message on issues affecting our industry and growing our educational programs to equip new employees as they enter the industry. 3. Create a Business Development arm to create a regional approach to economic development by organizing members within common areas to partner in providing telecommunications services to attract and maintain local businesses within these regional clusters. 4. Broaden the member base by expanding membership to other Iowa telecommunications or utility industries. In recent years, I have been very active in our lobbying efforts at the Iowa Legislature, with the Iowa Congressional Delegation and at the FCC. I believe that I can continue to contribute in this area as we move forward in the changed environment. It is my expectation that the ITA will have transitioned to the Iowa Broadband Association (IBA) as the network continues to converge to a single broadband transport platform. In addition, I would expect a new member base more diverse by industry, but still focused on community based services to Iowa communities. I envision expanded Educational services, independently or in partnership with Iowa Area Communities Colleges, to provide technical certification programs and industry specific training programs. I would be pleased to see a business development arm of the association that would help to get our message out to the various rural development groups throughout Iowa. I expect to see fewer companies, but a larger average size, with greater need for efficiencies and competitiveness.
