Join our steering committee

Co-ops cannot be formed without active participation from their members and their communities. Our steering committee is a group of Mission Valley residents who volunteer their time and energy to prepare the incorporation of the actual cooperative.

Some of the topics and tasks that we continue to work on, or will be working on going forward:

  • Finalize our feasibility study
  • Research further details of technical options for launching our mesh network in the valley
  • Spread the word in the community and generate interest and additional community involvement
  • Maintain social media channels and website
  • Create a business plan
  • Develop the coop’s governance structure and foundational documents
  • Explore grants, loans and other initial funding opportunities and secure funds
  • Organize a member-drive

Would you or someone you know be willing to help us? While no specific experience is required, if you have or someone in your circles has any of the following skills and interests, please consider joining us:

  • You have experience in business, finance, law, marketing, cooperatives, or community outreach.
  • People call you a “tech person.”
  • You know all your neighbors.
  • You care about your community and for providing affordable internet access to everyone.

If you can dedicate 2 to 3 hours per week to help, please get in touch with us by emailing us at missionvalleyinternet@gmail.com or by calling Mission West at (406) 676-5919.

Additionally, we meet every other week, typically a Wednesday at 6 – 7 PM.

We look forward to hearing from you!
