Overview

The National League of Cities, National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors, NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association, and Public Technology Institute are hosting this webinar to help local elected officials better understand the impact of broadband, or robust telecommunications access, on improving agricultural practices and development.

Technological innovation has the ability to increase efficiency, encourage innovation, and ultimately, drive social and economic growth. In the case of agriculture, creating the technological infrastructure needed to enhance farming and ranching practices is crucial for sustaining local economies.

This webinar will outline the ways broadband access is improving agricultural practices in this country and a specific look at how it is working in one particular community in Kansas. The webinar will also share ways on how local leaders can create and promote policies that will support their agricultural economy and what federal resources exist to assist them in these efforts.
