SEATOA’S 2016 Annual Conference, onMarch 14th & 15th, was our first in Florida and we welcomed many new Florida participants. Held at the beautiful Marriott Renaissance World Golf Resort in St. Augustine, attendees participated in pre-conference in-depth training sessions on “The Internet of Things” and “Covering the 2016 Elections”. These sessions were followed by two days full of educational workshops on community broadband and community programming topics which received rave reviews from our attendees.
Keynote luncheon speakers included Clint Odom, from U.S. Senator Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) Office and staff of the Senate Commerce Committee, who provided an update on activities in Washington; and Andrew Hayes, USDA Rural Utilities’ Service Telecom Field Representative for Florida & Georgia, who provided an update on RUS and Rural Development Programs funding opportunities.
Special thanks go out to the NATOA Executive Director and Board members who participated and all our terrific sponsors.
