Regional Roundtables/Workshops in person and with webinar/audio, web and video conferencing available. Content may include information and examples/best practices such as:
How broadband can support education, economic development, health care, and community services. Emphasis on economic development
Models of community rights-of-way policies that will expedite and reduce costs in the permitting process. Local communities need to develop policies that reduce costs, remove barriers and expedite deployment
As you know, on December 13 we presented a Webinar on Arizona’s Broadband Progress, Strategies, Plans and New Technologies being developed in Arizona to facilitate broadband deployment to rural and under-served communities. Attendees also learned about some of Arizona’s great companies and resources and about the Broadband Stakeholder Network.
Fifty-eight people from business, government, education and nonprofit organizations registered to attend. It was a very diverse group including the 3 universities, community colleges, school districts, reservations, Economic Development Directors, libraries, local communities, and more. Interesting about the registrations is that there were a lot of new people that have not been engaged with us in the past. I am guessing that this is a result of the new email list I am developing and some social media promotion. FYI, as a result of the webinar I met with Derek Masseth the new Director of the Sun Corridor Network who is joining our Leadership Team, and, in January Jeff Sobotka and I will be meeting with the CIO at ASU.
