Evaluating the Broadband Stimulus
Broadband Breakfast Club
Tuesday, October 19th, 2010
The event participants will discuss how The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) have obligated nearly $7.2 billion for broadband-related activities under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Final funds were dispensed by September 30, 2010. This panel will consider how well the agencies performed their tasks - and set the stage for identifying the factors that will help provide rigorous evaluation of program results.
Speakers include Charles Benton, Chairman of the Benton Foundation; Jacquie Jones, Executive Director, National Black Programming Consortium; Craig Settles, President, Successful.com and Independent Industry Analyst; Lori Sherwood, Inter-County Broadband Network.
The event is hosted by Drew Clark, Chairman and Publisher of BroadbandBreakfast.com and moderated by Bernie Arnason, Managing Partner & Founder, Pivot Media.
