Broadband Communities Conference: Community Fiber Networks Economic Development October 18 – 20 in Minneapolis

Bernadine_InCommonsBlandin Foundation is pleased that Broadband Communities is bringing their regional conference to Minneapolis this Fall. I have had the pleasure of attending previous conferences in Austin (TX) and Chicago. I have learned a lot a made some great connections.

We are honored to be working with Broadband Communities on some of the content and conference planning. We’re excited to show off some of our Minnesota success to a wider audience. (Not to mention showing off the beauty of a Minnesota autumn.) In some ways, the Broadband Communities conference will act as our usual Fall Broadband Conference – we will have a much smaller event because we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner and go bigger when we heard from the folks at Broadband Communities.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Here’s the word from Broadband Communities…
