Cat Blake

Next Century Cities: Policy and Program Manager

There’s no “one size fits all” connectivity model for communities, but there are common threads that run through success stories. From staffing to permitting practices to financing models, Next Century Cities’ Becoming Broadband Ready toolkit compiles the building blocks of a successful broadband project into an easy-to-use and impactful resource. In this session, Next Century Cities’ Policy and Program Manager Cat Blake will give an overview of the resources available and topics covered in the toolkit. A conversation with experts and community leaders from across the country will offer an in-depth look at how communities can learn from one another in the drive for better broadband.
