PUBLIC FORUM ON STATUS OF CHAIRMAN KENNARD'S DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN, "A NEW FCC FOR THE 21ST CENTURY," SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 28, 10 AM - NOON
A public forum to discuss the status of the initiatives announced last August in Chairman
Kennard's strategic plan, "A New FCC for the 21st Century," will be held Friday, April 28, from
10 am to noon. The draft plan is available on the FCC website at: www.fcc.gov/21st_century.|
The forum will be held in the Commission Meeting Room at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC. It will be open to the public and seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.
FCC Chief of Staff Kathryn Brown will give an overview of the status of the Draft Strategic Plan as detailed in the implementation "Report Card," which was delivered to Congress on March 21. Also, there will be presentations on the status of the initiatives under the plan's four primary goals to successfully carry out the transition from a market regulator to a market facilitator. Those goals are to (1) create a model agency for the digital age; (2) promote competition in all communications markets; (3) promote opportunities for all Americans to benefit from the communications revolution; and (4) manage the electromagnetic spectrum (the Nation's airwaves) in the public interest.
The forum will be closed captioned and will be carried live on the Internet through RealAudio from the FCC website at: http://www.fcc.gov/realaudio/.
A transcript of the forum will be available 10 business days after the event on the FCC's Internet site. The URL address for the FCC's Internet Home Page is http://www.fcc.gov.
