Rep.Mike Doyle (D-PA) will deliver the keynote congressional speech at the American Cable Association’s 15th Annual Washington Summit in April.
A seventh-term Congressman, Doyle will make his speech on April 9 at the Westin City Center in the nation’s capitol. Doyle is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and is the vice chairman of the Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, which has jurisdiction over communications, media and technology issues.
“We are very honored to have Congressman Doyle address our members,” said ACA president and CEO Matthew Polka in a statement. “We greatly appreciate his ongoing efforts to develop national telecommunications policies that are sensitive to the concerns of America’s small businesses, so many of them represented within our ACA membership.”
ACA’s Summit provides an opportunity for ACA member companies to tell Congress and the FCC about the critical issues and concerns facing independent cable providers and their customers. At the Summit, ACA will also celebrate 15 years of representing independent cable operators throughout America.
" ACA’s 15th Annual Summit will unite our membership in Washington, D.C., to share the very real stories of independent, smaller and rural cable providers across the U.S. with policymakers and industry leaders,” Polka said. “As the ACA tirelessly fights for the needs of its members, consumers and communities, our event will facilitate meetings with elected officials, provide insight from compelling keynote speakers, and offer innovative programming and business solutions from their industry partners.”
