Attention CLIC members! Broadband Communities is offering a significant registration discount for CLIC members who are attending the “Fiber: Get in the Game of Gigs” Summit in Dallas this year, scheduled for May1-4, 2017. Join us for CLIC’s pre-conference event on May 1st, then stay a few more days for one of the most instructive and well-attended community broadband conferences in the country.
CLIC’s pre-conference event, “Making Local Internet Choice Happen in a Changing Environment: Opportunities and Challenges in 2017,” will focus on how to overcome barriers that impede the development of advanced communications networks. We will examine the impact of the new federal administration on local Internet choice, new state legislative efforts both for and against local Internet choice, and innovative fiber deployment approaches in rural areas. Our interactive panels of experts will share best practices, experiences and strategies for developing robust, resilient networks — including a full range of public-private partnerships — and for overcoming political, legal, and financial barriers.
You can register as a CLIC member here. To receive the CLIC member discount, simply go to the “CODE” drop down menu and type in CLIC2017, for a conference rate of $350. If you are not already a member of CLIC, you can join here (It’s free.)
