FCC Virtual Forum & ACM Public Policy Call December 2 

The FCC is hosting a virtual forum on the State of Captioning Online Video on December 2. It will feature both policy and technical innovations and could reflect possible changes in FCC policy in coming years with new leadership.  The event is free and you can send in live questions to the panels.  Click here for more information on the event. 

That same day, ACM will be hosting our monthly public policy call. Let us know if you’d like an invitation to this members-only discussion. 

Meanwhile, it looks like there may be additional nomination hearings and votes in the Senate Commerce Committee on the Biden Administration’s nominees to the Commission in early December.  We’ll keep you posted as they are scheduled.   

Thank you ACM Members!

And as we are looking ahead at Thanksgiving this week, I want to thank you all for being a part of the Alliance for Community Media.  “Building community” sometimes seems like an amorphous concept, but the fellowship that members provide each other – and that you have provided me – is a real thing. I’m grateful for it, and want to thank you for being a part of that fellowship.

Thank you – and I hope you have the ability to be with your loved ones this week.
