A Public-Private Partnership Success Model: A Case Study of Connect Maine Authority webinar
The NTIA’s BEAD program represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bridge the digital divide once and for all. Though the landscape and process of building broadband infrastructure is complex, there is no reason that every home and business in the US can’t be connected to fast, affordable broadband.

For broadband funders, planners and builders, the way to make this work is through public-private partnerships that combine expertise, data and tools to accelerate and simplify the process of building new broadband infrastructure.

In this panel discussion, we’ll hear from Peggy Shaffer, Executive Director of the State of Maine’s Connect Maine Authority. Earlier this year, Connect Maine applied for and received the largest NTIA grant to date, $28 million, to build new infrastructure serving 11,000 homes across the state.

Shafer will be joined on this panel by Connect Maine Authority partners VETRO Fiber Map, CostQuest Associates, and Tilson Technologies

Key discussion points will include:
- Case study of the Connect Maine Authority funding success
- Leveraging public-private partnership for broadband success
- Success factors for the upcoming BEAD program

Who Should Attend:
- Telecom and Utility CEOs/General Managers
- State Broadband Office Executives
- Community and Economic Development Leads
