Minnesota Broadband Task Force – 15 positions are open

This came up at the last broadband task force meeting … the Task Force members, by default, have had three-year appointments and those three years are up. So apparently the Task Force members will be asked to reapply – but those seats are actually open to everyone. So if you’re interested the opportunity was mentioned in the Secretary of State Vacancy listing
