I heads up for people in the area; a good model for other communities. I am hoping to attend and take notes…
You are invited to join in the Chisago County broadband conversation. In the effort to improve broadband in the county, the Chisago County Blandin Broadband Communities (BBC) Committee is holding a summit. Anyone interested in this topic is welcome to attend. There will be opportunity before and after the meeting to visit at Topic Tables. The Topic Tables will include experts from various areas to discuss how broadband speeds affect their industry such as education, health care, and economic development. The local Internet providers will be available to talk with you about your specific location in the county.
This is a chance to learn what the Chisago County residents said in the “Got Internet Survey,” find out the difference in broadband options, join in the conversation with local Internet providers, and learn about state resources from the Department of Broadband. Federal, State and local elected officials are invited to participate.
The Summit will be held at the banquet room at Splitrocks Entertainment Center in Wyoming on May 26, 2016 starting at 5:00 p.m. with presentations starting at 5:30 p.m. Opportunities to visit with a number of experts will be provided before and after the presentations. Hors d’ouevers and refreshments will be provided. There is no charge for the event, but we appreciate registrations to help in planning.
