Retransmission consent reform, protecting customer privacy, cybersecurity preparedness, program access reform and several other topics are being debated by policymakers. Given all that is at stake, it’s important for independent cable operators to share their views and concerns about these key issues with Members of Congress. “If you don’t become engaged in the dialog that’s going on, you really can’t stand up and say, ‘Gee, why did this happen?’” said Duke Milunovich, Director of Sales and Marketing for Volcano Communications.
ACA’s Summit makes it easy to discuss key issues with policymakers. ACA’s staff will schedule your appointments on Capitol Hill, conduct a lobbying briefing session to answer your questions, review talking points and thoroughly prepare you for lobbying. Plus, your Summit registration includes: a day of general sessions featuring D.C. insiders, three evening receptions, two breakfasts, two lunches, a sold-out exhibit hall and access to a cyber coffee lounge—all of which provide time to network with colleagues. Among the session speakers are:
Congressman Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee where he sits on three subcommittees: Communications and Technology, Energy and Power and the Environment and the Economy.
U.S. Representative Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) serves on the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, the Energy and Commerce Committee, and the House Intelligence Committee.
