Iowa LinkedUp Forum Rescheduled for December 12 – Let’s help shape the future of economic growth and telecommunications in Iowa
A couple months ago, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad announced a new initiative, “Connect Every Iowan,” which focuses on the legislative recommendations needed to expand broadband to all Iowans. The initiative will help develop a long-term plan to position Iowa as the most connected state in the Midwest.
Increasingly, the significance of broadband availability as a key driver in our cities and all over Iowa is becoming known. It’s important that the telecommunications industry and the economic development industry work together to help shape the future of Iowa. Together, we can help achieve that goal of making sure all Iowans are connected.
The Iowa LinkedUp forum mentioned in a previous issue of PDI Post was rescheduled for Thursday, December 12, and registration is open. Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds will be speaking to the “Connect Every Iowan” initiative. You’ll also have the opportunity to connect with the telecommunications industry to learn about new resources, share best practices and see how your communities benefit from the efforts telecommunications companies in Iowa.
