Sessions will focus on USF reform, financial strategies, and broadband & video policies
We’re just a few weeks into 2016 and already we foresee this being a pivotal year for our industry. Our sources are telling us that the FCC is prepared to finally vote on major USF reform in February, triggering the avalanche of changes we’ve been discussing and anticipating for years. We also expect to see changes to the federal Lifeline program and video rules, as well as continuing network modifications as we move to all-IP.
With all of these upcoming events, plus a possibly historic spectrum auction, JSI once again has developed a full slate of seminars to explain the latest happenings at the FCC and provide you with in-depth analysis that you’ll need to make the right decisions for your future. We hope you’ll carve time out of your busy schedule to join us at these important seminars this year.
Spring Management Seminars
Our seminar series kicks off in May with our flagship Management Seminars. The 2016 seminars are again strategically located around the country on the following dates:
Thursday, May 5 & Friday, May 6 u2012 Minneapolis
Thursday, May 12 & Friday, May 13 u2012 Atlanta
Monday, May 23 & Tuesday, May 24 u2012 San Antonio
As always, we’re developing a jam-packed agenda for all three Management Seminars. Our expert speakers are planning to cover:
- Comprehensive analysis of the FCC’s USF reforms and operational considerations carriers will need to make in light of reform;
- How to launch broadband products that your customers need and want;
- Impact of spectrum auctions and deployment in primary and secondary markets;
- Hot topics for video providers, including modified retransmission rules and regulatory requirements; and
- Latest IP transition issues and challenges.
Fall Financial Seminars
The series continues in September in Nashville with our Accounting and Separations & Access seminars:
Tuesday, September 20: Accounting Seminar
Wednesday, September 21 – Friday, September 23: Separations & Access Seminar
Our Accounting Seminar will look at the latest changes to Part 32, the FCC’s scrutiny of the Part 64 allocation mechanisms, and the USAC-OIG audits. The Separations & Access seminar will focus on changes caused by USF reform, plus a review of cost settlements, regulated and non-regulated allocations, jurisdictional categories, access procedures, and intercarrier compensation.
