I’ve been anxious to see the list of presenters at next week’s TISP Forum. Here they are…

Telecommunications and Information Society Policy Forum
Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs
Roy Wilkins Room (215)
310 19th Avenue South * Minneapolis, MN 55455

February 17, 2011 * 4:00 to 5:30 PM

PREVIEW OF COUNTY-WIDE FTTH PROJECTS IN MINNESOTA

COOK COUNTY/ARROWHEAD ELECTRIC PROJECT
Danna MacKenzie, Cook County IT Director

LAKE COUNTY PROJECT
Paul Bergman, Lake County Commissioner

SIBLEY COUNTY PROJECT
Mark Erickson, Winthrop City Manager/EDA Director

The TISP Forum has been a venue where discussion on county-led broadband development has occurred for some time. Several years ago TISP co-sponsored the first Regional Broadband Conference held in Dakota County. Since then several counties have launched broadband projects. Three of those projects have set their sights on FTTH networks and the leaders of those projects will be presenters at the TISP Forum on February 17. Please join us.

The idea behind this forum is simple and essential: purposeful exchange on key issues with engaged stakeholders to create a better information future
