June 27 and 28 brought program partners of One Community and other BTOP PCC/SBA grantees together at #CBAIS (Community Broadband Adoption Impact & Sustainability Conference).
Veterans of the movement assembled with new practitioners under the BTOP banner. The feel was very much reminiscent of the vibrant CTCNet conferences of old and underscored the need for us to work to rebuild and reboot the institutional capacity of the field. Toward that end numerous discussions are building upon the work of the Rebuild-Reboot retreat convened on the heels of the Digital Excellence Conference.
It has been slow going, prostate but we remain committed and are putting together a steering committee to advance this work on the national front, grounded in the long standing vision and legacy of our field.
