The Susan G. Hadden Pioneer Award is presented each year for "For Pioneering Efforts in Telecommunications and Consumer Access." This year's program also marks the transition of the Alliance for Public Technology (APT) to the National Broadband Resource Center (NBRC), re-imagining the APT mission of "connecting each to all." While the mission remains the same, the core focus of the NBRC will shift from deployment to adoption and innovation.
