One last reminder: The FCC’s Workshop on Closed Captioning and PEG will be taking place Tuesday from 1-5 pm EST.

The FCC will be taking questions during the event, so join us – if you can’t make the workshop it will be available for later viewing. My thanks to NATOA for partnering with ACM to help advise the FCC on this workshop.

It’s important that your voice be heard!

Mark your calendar for ACM NE in Hartford CT next week. I’ll be speaking at the event a week from Friday, but the three day event is a great opportunity to learn about developments in community media and network with your colleagues in the North East states.
