I’ve mentioned that we’re trying lots of different things with the Fall Broadband conference, spurred by the decision to go entirely online. This has opened up the opportunity for “special sessions” such as the one I can announce today…
We’re very excited to mid-conference session lead by Molly O’Leary, director of government affairs, NTCA, and advocates in Congress and at the U.S. Department of Agriculture to influence legislative and regulatory policy on behalf of NTCA members. (And I have to note Molly’s Minnesota connections! She worked in the U.S. Senate as a policy advisor to Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn) on telecommunications, appropriations and native affairs. She previously served as a legislative aide to Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) for his position on the Senate Judiciary Committee.)
Join Molly and NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association to discuss federal broadband regulatory and legislative updates, including the Federal Communications Commission Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and the Department of Agriculture’s ReConnect program. Learn about upcoming federal investments in broadband deployment and the importance of federal coordination and future proof networks. Connect with Minnesota’s small, community-based broadband operators and learn how those providers can be a resource and partner with municipalities and counties looking to expand or build networks.
