Special Pricing for Our 2021 Virtual Seminar

Take advantage of this year’s special pricing to share this seminar with members of your staff as well as your upper-level management. You can invite up to six people from your company to attend for $995 (contact us if you’d like to invite more than six staff members). Or you can register one person for $695.

This last year further amplified the need for our industry to keep pushing forward to provide rural America with top-notch broadband. We’ve seen billions of dollars at both the state and federal level poured into connecting rural communities, but as we know, money alone won’t solve the problem. It has become more important than ever for us to come together, even if it still isn’t feasible to meet in person, to discuss not only how to bring broadband to our customers, but to ensure that our companies are successful while doing it.

We hope you’ll join us Wednesday, April 28 & Thursday, April 29 to further those discussions. The theme of our 2021 Management Seminar is “Succeeding in a Broadband World.” Among the hot topics we’ll be discussing from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. EDT on those two days are:

  • Post-RDOF auction market assessments and strategies as unproven competitors creep ever closer;
  • Emerging broadband technologies including 5G, LEOS, and IP trunking and what your broadband network might look like in 2030;
  • Prospects of future USF funding, particularly what we expect from the 2024 review and the odds of an A-CAM III;
  • Profiling your customers for better marketing results;
  • Mitigating cybersecurity risks and fighting back against robocallers;
  • The future of access billing; and
  • Why the time might be right to calculate the value of your company and its assets.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Prepare for future competitive, technological and compliance developments
  • Plan for the network of tomorrow 
  • Grow your revenue through new services and initiatives
  • Set up your company for success in the next 5 to 10 years
  • Meet requirements due to changes to federal telecom policies
  • Anticipate other initiatives that might be heading your way

Even though our Management Seminar venue will be different in 2021, our goal remains the same – to showcase the financial, management, regulatory, and technical information you’ll need to remain successful in our evolving industry. Our seminar as always will be led by some of the industry’s most respected experts, including JSI President Steve Meltzer; N-Com President Dennis Wisdom; JSI Vice Presidents John Kuykendall, Dave Lewis, Jamie Miller, Bhavini Sokhey, and Valerie Wimer; N-Com Vice President Tom Lewis; and JSI Director of Economics & Policy Douglas Meredith.
