[ARCHIVED] FCC Seeks Local Elected Officials for Advisory Committee

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is soliciting nominations for membership on the Intergovernmental  Advisory Committee (IAC) and has announced that it is extending the deadline to submit nominations until January 13, 2020.

The mission of the IAC is to provide advice to the FCC on the many telecommunications issues affecting local, state and Tribal governments that are within the jurisdiction of the FCC. These issues can range from major FCC policy priorities such as broadband adoption and deployment, especially in unserved and underserved rural areas, to strengthening public safety communications infrastructure and emergency response capabilities, streamlining facilities siting while respecting local rights of way, monitoring transition from “legacy” telecommunications services to emerging wireline networks and wireless networks, and ensuring effectiveness and efficiency of the universal service program.

Additional information about the function of the advisory committee, who is eligible to be nominated and procedures for submitting nominations can be found in the IAC Nominations Public Notice. The League urges interested members with the requisite expertise to submit their nomination to the IAC. Local input at the Federal level is critically important, especially now as we see a shift to small cell and 5G technology. If you become a member of the IAC please let us at the League know.  We will be happy to assist in any way.
