The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN on Saturday, June 22 at Union Point Park. The revival of the race in 2018, after a 20 year or so hiatus, was a huge success! We look forward to this being a signature event for New Bern for years to come. The race takes hundreds of hours of planning plus hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. One of the most important components of an event of this size is, of course, our sponsors. We are pleased to welcome Suddenlink by Altice as one of our media sponsors this year.
Here is a little bit about Altice USA.
Altice USA is a communications and media company that enables its customers through the power of connectivity. With a relentless focus on challenging today’s norm while developing the telecommunication of the future, our products and services bring people closer together and connect them to the things that matter most to them, faster and more easily than ever before.
From high-speed broadband and ultra-HD video, to digital advertising solutions, local news and voice offerings, we are making connections possible around the country — to businesses, to consumers, to communities, to schools, to hospitals, and everyone in between.
Central to how we operate is the idea of reinvention. Fearless reinvention at that. Our passion for challenging the way communication has always worked and believing in what’s possible is rooted in our obsession for our customers, whose changing behaviors, expectations and make up are helping to shape the company we are today and the one we aspire to become.
And to meet the needs of our customers, we’re building a company and a workforce that is equipped to deliver on the Altice USA promise. That means creating an environment that attracts and retains the best talent and reflects the ideas, perspective and backgrounds of the diverse communities and people that we serve across the country. Because we believe that great ideas and the chance to help deliver for our customers are opportunities that should come from every member of our team. And when our make-up and thinking reflects that of the world in which we live, we are a stronger company for it.
Altice USA has a rich DNA – a mindset – that helps bring our teams from across the company together and sets the tone for how we conduct ourselves. Our people are driven. They take chances, learn from their actions and are accountable to themselves, their teams, the business and, most importantly, our customers. Altice USA employees lean in and use their voices to challenge ideas and to celebrate one another. And they understand how they as individuals impact the greater team for the better. Suddenlink is one of the Altice brands. Here is what Altice has to say about Suddenlink
