Get to Know Your Co-op at Power Bites with DMEA

May 4, 2018

DMEA and Elevate Fiber invite public to open house at Big B's Delicious Orchards

May 4, 2018 — Members of Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) are invited to join the co-op to enjoy finger foods and sample Big B’s products at Power Bites next Friday, May 11 at Big B’s Delicious Orchards in Hotchkiss between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Both DMEA and Elevate fiber representatives will be on hand to answer questions and get to know the membership.

Power Bites was created as part of the co-op’s renewed efforts to be accessible to its members. This year, DMEA has hosted Power Bites in Montrose, Cedaredge, Crawford, and now Hotchkiss. All events are free and open to the public. Additionally, members will also have the opportunity to learn more about Elevate Fiber, DMEA’s fiber internet subsidiary. Elevate staff members will be there to help people preregister for service and answer questions.

“The most valuable conversations and the most insightful feedback always come when we’re able directly meet up with our members. But making that personal connection is hard today—our lives are busy, so why not go to our members and meet them where they already are,” said Bronec.

Power Bites is free to attend at Big B’s Delicious Orchards, 39126 HWY 133, Hotchkiss, CO . There will be no formal topic or presentation and the public can come and go as they please. Members are encouraged to ask questions on the topics of their choosing. For more information and the full schedule of Power Bites events visit or contact Becky at (970) 240-1263 or

Connecting with members: DMEA employees and board members talk with members during the Morning Buzz last year at the Looney Bean. The open-house style gathering allowed for members to ask questions and offer ideas about how the co-op can better serve them.
