The FCC's Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA) is holding a special series of interactive web events. These outreach webinars are designed to share vital information about Commission actions and priorities and improve federal/state dialogue and information sharing. The FCC is seeking a two-way dialogue on key events and issues related to telecommunications and for us to learn and/or partner with state and local governments and their organizations.
