ACA Announces Winners Of Prestigious Industry Awards At Independent Show

The American Cable Association announce on July 23 this year's winners of the trade group's most prestigious awards, which honor partnership, selfless dedication and vital support designed to ensure that the independent cable community remains hometown America's indispensable link to world-class voice, video and broadband communications services.

"ACA is a thriving enterprise in so many important ways because it can rely on the tireless service rendered by ACA Members who want to see locally based cable operators flourish in the competitive public policy arena," ACA President and CEO Matthew M. Polka said. "ACA's highest awards go to those special individuals and companies that have stood out in terms of their effort to provide ACA with the resources needed to prevail on the issues, and I salute each of them on receiving these richly deserved accolades."
