'A Time to Build' BEAD Webinar Series with Jonathan Chambers

Jonathan Chambers is widely considered one of the industry's foremost experts on broadband legislation and funding. Under his guidance, Conexon and its partners have collectively secured more federal broadband funding for fiber construction than any other group in the country.

Joined by special guest co-op leaders who have successfully leveraged funding to serve their members, Chambers will: 

  • Provide an overview on the current BEAD environment 
  • Frame how co-ops should be thinking about BEAD and how to leverage public funding
  • Launch Conexon’s 100 Club -- recognizing co-ops who have achieved the milestone of fiber-to-the-home network completion to ensure 100% of members have access to broadband
