The Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities (IAMU) is presenting the 5th Annual Broadband Conference on March 30 & 31 in Des Moines. This year, the organization is adding the Municipal Broadband Explorers Track to provide information for communities seeking more information as they consider the publicly owned option.
Our own Chris Mitchell will lead the Expedition and will be accompanied by a number of community leaders who know a thing or two about municipal broadband. Some of the presenters will be:
- Jim Baller, Baller, Herbst, Stokes & Lide
- Vincent Turner, Longmont, CO
- Paul Scott, Decorah Fast Fiber, IA
- Mark Erickson, Sibley County, MN
- Mike Litterer, Waverly Utilities, IA
- Eric Lampland, Lookout Point Communications
The Municipal Broadband Explorers Track offers specialized conversations that community leaders seek as they consider whether or not a muni is right for their town, city, or county. You can view the full agenda here to plan your visit.
