EVENT: May 19 Blandin Roundtable discussion on Finding the Right Provider Partner

Please join community broadband champions from across Minnesota on Tuesday, May 19 at 9 a.m. for another leadership roundtable discussion.  The topic this week is Finding the Right Provider Partner. Bill Coleman will set the stage with a short presentation followed by an open discussion of participant’s stories of success and/or frustration.

We will look over the Blandin Foundation’s general purpose partner checklist and examine how it applies to private-public broadband partnerships.   We welcome everyone and all perspectives to this conversation, expert or on the learning curve, community leader or broadband provider.  Our last roundtable benefited greatly from our the participation of providers and consultants; we hope that this continues.  The more that prospective partners know about each other, the stronger the partnership can become.  Likewise, some of the best partnerships are those that never come to fruition, especially if there is a serious mismatch in both long and short term goals.

Following this conversation, we will move to whatever broadband topic is on your mind.  So bring your questions!
