In the meantime, we have decided to present two of the planned conference sessions as webinars, and we'd love to have you participate! These webinars are free of charge and do not require pre-registration. We will also be recording them for people who could not join us live.
"Regulatory Compliance Review"
Thursday, April 2, 2020
Jim Baller of Baller Stokes Lide PC will review the annual regulatory requirements that all telecommunications companies should be aware of, including the new "Truth-In-Billing" requirements that are set to go into effect this summer. Curtis Dean of IAMU/SmartSource Consulting will moderate the discussion. In addition to Jim's presentation you will also be able to text in your questions to (515) 236-5075 or use the chat function in the Zoom webinar platform.
"Retransmission Consent 2020"
Thursday, April 16, 2020
The next round of retransmission consent negotiations at the end of 2020 could be the most painful yet. TV stations are expected to ask for big increases in the fees they charge cable operators while continuing to crowd their broadcast frequency with digital subchannels of questionable value.
During this webinar, Curtis Dean will discuss the upcoming round of negotiations with Jean Edhlund, Video Products Partner with Cooperative Network Services in Minnesota. Jean is a familar name for many of us, having served as the primary contact for Fox Sports Networks for many years.
The webinar is open to up to 100 participants on a first-come, first served basis. You will be able to log in the webinar waiting room up to 15 minutes before the start time to ensure a spot.
Feel free to share this email with anyone in your organization that we may have missed.
Please contact Curtis Dean with any questions, (515) 650-0251 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
