FCC Announces Membership and First Meeting of the Re-Chartered BDAC

This Public Notice serves as notice that, consistent with the Federal Advisory Committee Act,
FCC or Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has appointed members to serve on the re-chartered
Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC). The re-chartered BDAC will hold its
first meeting on Thursday, June 13, 2019, beginning at 9:30 am, in the Commission Meeting
Room at FCC Headquarters.

In its second term, the BDAC will continue its work to craft recommendations for the
Commission on ways to accelerate the deployment of high-speed Internet access, or
“broadband,” by reducing and/or removing regulatory barriers to infrastructure investment
and strengthening existing broadband networks in communities across the country. The
BDAC will continue to provide an opportunity for interested stakeholders to exchange ideas
and develop recommendations to the Commission on broadband deployment, which will in
turn enhance the Commission’s ability to carry out its statutory responsibility to encourage
the deployment of broadband to all Americans.

Specifically, the BDAC and its three Working Groups will address the following topics:
 Disaster Response and Recovery Working Group—Measures to improve the resiliency of
broadband infrastructure before a disaster occurs, and strategies that can be used during
and after the response to a disaster to minimize broadband network downtime.2

 Increasing Broadband Investment in Low-Income Communities Working Group—New
ways to encourage the deployment of high-speed broadband infrastructure and services to
low-income communities.3

 Broadband Infrastructure Deployment Job Skills and Training Opportunities Working
Group—Ways to make more widely available and improve job skills training and
development opportunities for the broadband infrastructure deployment workforce
