The trade group’s new president will focus on piloting independent broadband providers in a rapidly changing market climate.
After 25 years, he says it’s time to embrace change. The search for a new president and CEO is near completion, and the trade group plans to announce the search committee’s selection during the ACA Connects Board meeting in mid-May.
The National Cable Television Cooperative and ACA Connects opt for online-only event in response to shifting COVID-19 situation.
Instead, the trade group says it will focus on helping members serve their communities amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The move is a reaction to the spread of the coronavirus. The event, planned for March 17-19 in Washington, will be rescheduled at a later date.
The group is now ACA — America’s Communications Association, branded as ACA Connects. CEO Matthew Polka: “With this name change, we’re recognizing that communication is the priority, not the medium.”
