As North Carolina prepares for continued growth over the next decade, the state must address the availability and adoption of reliable broadband for citizens in both rural and urban areas alike. On Monday, February 10, North Carolina State University’s Institute for Emerging Issues is hosting the ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity Forum. During this event, participants will explore how broadband and internet policies affect our communities and how our state’s digital potential could help us all succeed. Learn more about the forum here.
Ahead of the event, we’re pleased to share that the NC Chamber is presenting an exclusive opportunity for our members to join a conversation with the event’s keynote speaker, Larry Irving, president and CEO of the Irving Group.
Irving is a groundbreaking researcher on the digital divide whose work in internet policy has had a global impact, earning him a spot in the Internet Hall of Fame. He served in the Clinton Administration as the assistant secretary of commerce for communications and information, and as the administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Following his time in Washington, Irving also served as vice president of global government affairs for Hewlett-Packard Company.
Please join us in a conversation regarding the future of technology and what we should be prepared for, before the start of the ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity Forum. This exclusive, free-of-charge breakfast is reserved for NC Chamber members only, however, you must be registered for the ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity Forum.
