Calling all CSAC Members in the San Joaquin Valley! We’re happy to invite you to the San Joaquin Valley Affordable Broadband Summit on November 9 from 8:30am to 12:30pm—on Zoom—hosted by our partners at the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF).


We have assembled a diverse group of experts, community leaders, and advocates who will share their insights and experiences in addressing Broadband Access in the San Joaquin Valley.

The Goals:

  1. Establish a network of ACP leaders to reinforce action and advance best practices.
  2. Shape a regional and county strategy based on local successes and constraints.
  3. Secure commitments for near-term actions.

Topics of  Discussion:

  1. The Significance of Affordable Home Broadband Access.
  2. Effective Notification Strategies and the Role of Trusted Messengers.
  3. Insights from State and Local Leaders on Future Resources for Affordable Internet.

Your presence and participation at the Summit meeting is important, as your perspective and expertise will contribute to the success in Bridging the Digital Divide in the San Joaquin Valley.

We also invite you to participate in a Pre-Summit Introductory meeting, during which we will provide insights into broadband solutions, including affordable home Internet options and the Affordable Connectivity Program. We’ll also discuss the current ACP enrollment rates in the San Joaquin Valley and how organizations can champion broadband access.  This preliminary meeting is an excellent opportunity to acquaint yourself with the Summit’s agenda and ensure you are well-informed about the topics that will be addressed during the main event.
