E-rate Webinar for Veteran Applicants

October 3, 2019

Monday, October 21 @ 1:00

~ Register Now! ~

For Pennsylvania applicants who are already familiar with E-rate (our “veterans”), there will be a 1.5 hour webinar on Monday, October 21 from 1 - 2:30 to kick off the FY 2020 filing season.  Please join me to learn what’s to come Funding Year 2020, as well as reminders of what’s still needed to be done for FY 2018 and FY 2019.  Although we don’t yet know what the FCC will decide to do with Category 2 for FY 2020, I will offer my ‘crystal ball’ expectations.  The PowerPoint archive of this webinar will be available for later viewing at http://e-ratepa.org/?page_id=745.

In order to reserve your seat in the webinar, registration is required.  Please note: This webinar is for schools and libraries only (no vendors).
