FCC Boot Camp-2

Three-day program in San Francisco will feature FHH’s Laura Stefani and Dan Kirkpatrick along with other eminent FCC practitioners providing insight into All Things FCC.

Attention, all you Friends of CommLawBlog! San Francisco beckons, again.

The American Conference Institute is presenting its second annual “FCC Boot Camp” program there from June 27-29, 2016. And this year the program will feature not one, but two frequent contributors to CommLawBlog: FHH’s own Laura Stefani and Dan Kirkpatrick.

The curriculum covers a wide range of topics, from the fundamentals of FCC regulation to a “Master Class” on privacy, security, and encryption rules for telecom and tech companies. Laura will be speaking about the process of “getting to market” – what entrepreneurs and equipment designers need to know about experimental and unlicensed spectrum uses and the FCC’s equipment authorization process. Meanwhile, Dan will be delving into the FCC’s regulation of program distribution in the full range of available technologies – broadcasting, cable, satellite and Internet. (For a copy of the official Agenda-At-A-Glance, click here.)

Laura and Dan will not be alone. The program features a range of other eminent representatives of the communications bar (“A Who’s Who of the Telecommunications Bar”, according to ACI). The format of the three-day affair provides plenty of opportunity not only to sit in on the various presentations but also to interact with the presenters in one-on-one conversations. If you’re looking for a good way to immerse yourself in All Things FCC with a top-notch roster of presenters ready to make that immersion as useful (and as painless) as possible, this FCC Boot Camp is just the ticket. Plus, you’ll be in San Fran in late June, just blocks away from the Boudin Bakery (home of some of the best sourdough in the world) – and yes, the Giants will be at home in AT&T Park on June 27-28, playing the A’s (and on June 29, they’ll be visiting the A’s in nearby Oakland).
