Border to Border Broadband: Transforming Minnesota – Oct 23-24 in Brainerd

I wanted to pass this on…

You’re Invited – Border to Border Broadband: Transforming Minnesota
October 23-24, 2018
Madden’s on Gull Lake – Brainerd, MN

We hope you will be joining us for Border to Border Broadband: Transforming Minnesota, our annual broadband conference, October 23-24 at Madden’s on Gull Lake in Brainerd. This year’s event will showcase and celebrate the transformative power of community passion fueled by high-speed broadband networks. But communities won’t be able to take advantage of all that broadband can offer if not everyone has access to it, and the skills to use it. That’s why you won’t want to miss, Climbing the Digital Use Ladder: Digital Inclusion, Adoption and Innovation.

Digital Inclusion is a ladder with steps that increase constantly. While some are inching to get on the ladder — others are beating the path to the top. You’ll hear from both ends of the spectrum during this half-day session on Tuesday, October 23 — and walk away with a few ideas you can implement tomorrow, and a few to work toward in the future.

Presenters include the ever-growing PCs for People on their refurbished computer distribution program, remote exercise programs for seniors from the Winona Friendship Center, precision agriculture from a Minnesota farmer, virtual reality projects that help with training, tourism and civic engagement as well as a few training programs.

Check out the conference webpage for more details, including the preliminary agenda, and register today!
