The 8th annual IAMU Broadband Conference is in the books.
Over 140 people (attendees and vendor representatives) enjoyed two days of learning and networking at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Urbandale.
Broadband Vanguard Awards
IAMU honored two individuals and one organization for outstanding support and service to municipal broadband during the inaugural Broadband Vanguard Awards held on Thursday, March 22, 2018. IAMU Executive Director Troy DeJoode presented each of the winners with a certificate during the awards ceremony.
The National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) has announced an agreement with the Society for Cable Telecom Engineers (SCTE) to provide member discounts on SCTE's vast library of online training courses.
The online SCTE courses are designed to enhance the skills of broadband technicians and other employees. For a list of available courses, CLICK HERE.
In addition to NCTC discounts, the courses are less expensive if the person taking it is a member of the SCTE. As a shameless plug from yours truly, the secretary of the Iowa Heartland Chapter of the SCTE, I can vouch for the value that SCTE membership brings. Also, our Iowa chapter offers a number of trainings and events to provide broadband technicians with hands-on learning. CLICK HERE for a list of the 2017 trainings!
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 IAMU Broadband Conference on April 22nd and 23rd! We had a lot of positive comments from both attendees and vendors and we hope you all found it a valuable use of time.
