Board Nominations & April 24th Phone Conference on Serving on the Board 

Every year, the Alliance holds an election for our members to select a portion of our Board of Directors.  All members can nominate someone for the Board, and it is ACM's commitment to our members that we be representative of our members and responsive to your needs.

Nominations will open in May and we will be hosting a discussion on Wednesday April 24th at 3:00 pm ET about service on the Board of Directors.  If you're interested in service or if you just want to find out what the ACM Board of Directors does, please join us!  Sign up here.

Video from Community Media Center to Congress 

Kudos to Erich Archer of 1623 Studios in Cape Ann, MA for producing a great video asking Congress to stop the FCC's FNPRM on so-called "in-kind" services.  Erich produced the video to share with communities across the country, so please use it on your channels and in your newsletters and social media. 

You can find the video here: 
This last week, Representative John Larson (CT) joined colleagues expressing his concern to the FCC about the impact of the FNPRM on the communities he serves.  Thanks to our Connecticut members for reaching out to his office and getting his support!

Have you scheduled a discussion with your member of Congress about the FNPRM?  If you need help setting that meeting up or sample letters from other Congressional offices,  please let me know at
