NetAmerica Alliance Recognized by Rural Cellular Association For Excellence in Marketing

Dallas, TX (October 06, 2011) – NetAmerica Alliance, LLC today announced that it received the Rural Cellular Association’s (RCA’s) annual “Excellence in Marketing” award in both the TV commercial and print categories. Scott Donlea, Chief Operating Officer accepted the awards on behalf of NetAmerica at the 2011 RCA Fall Expo in Las Vegas. RCA is the nation's leading association for competitive wireless providers serving rural and regional areas of the United States. The licensed service area of RCA's more than 100 members covers 95 percent of the nation.

The winning commercial portrayed how members of the NetAmerica Alliance benefit from the concept of strength in numbers as they work together to provide 4G LTE mobile broadband service to rural America. The print category was a piece highlighting how important it is for license holders to join the NetAmerica Alliance when considering offering service in their license areas based on a shared vision and shared values for rural citizens.

“Marketing and branding are two of the many valuable services we provide alliance members,” said Roger Hutton, Chairman and CEO of NetAmerica. “To be a dual award winner and to be recognized by RCA and its membership is a testament to the creative capabilities of our team in the development and execution of successful marketing programs.”

RCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry said, “I congratulate NetAmerica Alliance on their very well-deserved awards. Innovative marketing campaigns and advertisements are important parts of our members’ businesses, and we were delighted to honor NetAmerica Alliance with not just one, but two awards this year.”
