This Summer continues to move too fast, it is time to start thinking about fall. Getting ready for back to school, the Vikings, cooler temperatures, leaves turning color, and most importantly… the MTA FALL CONFERENCE!
This year’s event will open with an exciting lineup on Thursday. The afternoon kicks off with a presentation from MNIT Commissioner Jim Johnson (invited). MNIT controls the telecom contracts with state agencies throughout the state and this is a great opportunity to meet Jim and for him to meet MTA members. Jim’s presentation will be followed up with updates from the Office of Broadband Development and E911 Director Dana Wahlberg. We will also presentations on CAF/A-CAM for RoR companies and a Federal update from NTCA’s Mike Romano. Thursday’s session will conclude with a political panel discussion from journalists who can give us the inside scoop on state elections.
Again this year the MTA Event Planning Committee and staff have been working with the Video and IT Peer Groups for more opportunities to learn. Friday morning continues with separate tracks giving attendees the most current, up-to-date, information on Video and IT. Know you want to attend, but don’t know which sessions you want to attend? It doesn’t matter, you can mix and match sessions to meet your individual needs. Don’t wait! The event will conclude with keynote speaker FBI Special Agent Michael Krause. Special Agent Krause investigates Cyber-crimes and has a unique perspective on Cyber security that you haven’t heard before.
