NATE’s dedicated administrative staff in Watertown, S.D. supports the Association and its outreach group, the Wireless Industry Network (WIN), in ensuring continued membership growth.

The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) announced today that it had established a new all-time record of 828 member companies, a continuing increase in membership that the Association has seen for a number of years.

NATE’s 828th member is Construction & Telecommunication Services, Inc. of Danvers, Mass.

“NATE member companies encompass all layers of the wireless infrastructure chain and this new membership achievement is certainly reflective of that,” stated Executive Director Todd Schlekeway. “As the industry grows and evolves at a rapid pace, NATE will remain proactive in continuing to expand and diversify our membership base,” added Schlekeway.

“The marketplace is clearly responding to the enhanced membership benefits that have been offered by the Association over the course of the last several years,” said NATE Member Services Coordinator Rebekah Hauber. “Through specific outreach initiatives with the Wireless Industry Network (WIN) program and Member Services Committee, NATE looks forward to continuing to engage prospective member companies over the next several months in order to educate them on the value of joining the Association.”

The Member Services Committee is chaired by Jordyn Miller of MillerCo, Inc.

NATE member companies consist of tower construction firms, general contractors, tower owners, wireless carriers, engineering firms, technology companies, public safety entities, manufacturers, distributors and training companies. For NATE membership information, companies and industry stakeholders are encouraged to call (605) 882-5865 or visit the Association’s website at .

“Our state liaisons are truly assisting us in connecting with companies who aren’t aware of the many benefits that are available through membership. These men and women represent an extremely effective grass roots approach to spreading NATE’s message, and the increase in membership is assisted through their dedication,” said WIN director Scott Krouse.
