As we near summer, you can expect to receive your Capital Credits again this year. However, in a unanimous vote by the current GVTC Board of Directors, GVTC members will receive their Capital Credits in a new way this year.
GVTC is a tax-exempt, member-owned Texas Cooperative, which means any revenues over and above its operating expenses are returned to its active members in the form of Capital Credits. This year, GVTC is excited to once more issue Capital Credits in 2020.
Led by the GVTC Board of Directors, GVTC has released more than $50 million over the past ten years. "GVTC's ability to issue annual Capital Credits this size is a testament to the hard work of our dedicated employees and the visionary leadership of our Board of Directors," says CEO & President, Ritchie T. Sorrells.
New Way of Issuing Capital Credits
This year, GVTC will be applying each members' capital credits to their next bill. If you are a member, you should see that credit in your upcoming monthly June statement.
The GVTC Board of Directors annually reviews the cooperative's financial status to decide if capital credits are feasible and, if so, by how much. The amount released is in large part thanks to initiatives like our Member Dividend Program, GVTC Premium WiFi launch in September 2019, and the continuous fiber overbuild project in our service area.
"GVTC is a unique cooperative working to enhance the communities it serves, and the Board of Directors strives to aid in that mission as best we can. It's truly a team effort," comments GVTC Chairman of the Board, Chuck Knibbe.
Overall, GVTC attributes this year's success to its local roots and loyal customers.
