*WISPs Descend on Washington – *Earlier in May, WISPA welcomed
representatives from over 25 WISPA member companies as they spread out over
Capitol Hill for the association’s annual Day of Advocacy.  During the
day-long event, WISP operators and broadband solutions providers met with
over 50 different legislators, urging Congress to support policies that
encourage small companies like WISPs to help bring connectivity to all
Americans, regardless of location. For more info, please contact WISPA VP
of Government Affairs, Matt Mandel, at mmandel at wispa.org.

*State Activities Surge –* In California, AB 1065 passed the Assembly
unopposed, giving Fixed Wireless providers access to all funding pots
administered by CPUC, subject to approval by the agency. In Wisconsin,
WISPA and state WISPs are working with the authors of AB 303 to improve
core definitional language that would help small ISPs better access the
state’s broadband grant program. Farther south of there, the Louisiana
Broadband Office has released the first part of its BEAD Initial Proposal
and is taking public comments through June 23.  Elsewhere, Pennsylvania and
Tennessee have announced community tours and further opportunities for BEAD
engagement as they begin preparing their final materials. If you’d like
additional info, or would like to know how you can become more active for
the WISP industry at the state level, please contact WISPA State Advocacy
Manager, Steve Schwerbel at sschwerbel at wispa.org.

*BEAD Planning Season Is Finally, Truly Here –* WISPA submitted comments on
rulemaking proceedings in California and Nevada last month. Meanwhile,
several more states have open comment periods to take input on their BEAD
plans: Montana (due June 12), Vermont (due June 20), and Maine (due June
30). Please check your state’s broadband office website for these documents
and points of contact. While WISPA will be submitting comments as often as
possible, your voice significantly amplifies our efforts and provides
valuable local insights!  Reach out to Steve Schwerbel for more info.

*Best Practices Committee Marketing and Sales Webinar* – The newly formed
Best Practices Committee, Chaired by Tekwav’s Abbi Hubler, conducted its
first webinar on topics related to lead cultivation, stewardship, and
targeting.  If you’re a WISPA member, check out this link

information-packed, hour-long event. For more information, please contact

co-Chair of the committee) at rbernhardt at wispa.org.
