Policymaker Calls

We are excited to offer this new Full Member benefit. SHLB will host monthly calls with important policymakers who are working on anchor institution broadband issues. SHLB is your advocate in Washington, DC and can bring you access to the key players.

The calls will be archived and available only to Full SHLB Members. John Windhausen, SHLB's Executive Director, will moderate and call participants will be able to ask questions during the Q&A period at the end.
