SCAN NATOA Inc. CHAPTER MEETING

March 19, 2014, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

WIRELESS FACILITY REGULATORY UPDATE

LIVE WEBINAR – FOR SCAN MEMBERS ONLY

 This year’s hottest wireless issue is the FCC’s consideration of new facility siting regulations.  The FCC is set to reshape how local governments consider and grant permits for wireless sites.  This year, SCAN NATOA’s annual regulatory update will address the pending FCC rulemaking to bring you up to speed on the FCC’s proposal as it relates to Section 6409(a) and the Shot Clock, comments from both municipalities and the wireless industry, and what to expect after the FCC completes the rulemaking. 

The panelists are Gail Karish of Best, Best and Krieger, Javan Rad of the City of Pasadena and Tripp May of Telecom Law Firm, P.C.  Javan and Tripp were the primary authors of comments filed in the FCC’s wireless facility rulemaking on behalf of the League of California Cities, the California Association of Counties, and SCAN NATOA. 

This event will be of particular interest to elected officials, senior administrative staff, planning staff, city engineers, and others who deal with wireless siting issues on behalf of local governments. 

Only one webinar registration is needed if multiple SCAN NATOA members will be viewing from the same computer.  Registrants will receive access information 1-2 days in advance of the meeting.  At the time of the webinar, you will need Internet access to view the presentation on your computer monitor and listen to the presenters through your computer speakers (no telephone option is available). 

Please note that payment must be received no later than March 17, 2014, 5:00 p.m. to qualify for the discounted rate:

FAQ 

What is the SCAN NATOA Programming Swaparama?

Every two years, SCAN NATOA hosts an event that makes programming available to local community channels on DVD. Participating channels show up, hear pitches, screen clips and then take the DVDs of the shows that they think that they will want to air. Usually over 300 shows are available which makes it a great one-stop resource for programming to fill channel airtime. All of the shows acquired are selected because they are evergreen and of good quality and suitable for airing on a local cable channel. The programming providers have given us the rights to air the programs at no charge in order to reach a broader audience and/or because they generously are willing to share their shows to help out their fellow cable channels.  

Do I have to have a show to swap in order to participate? No, having a show to swap is not a requirement. We just like the name Swaparama, if you have one that is more catchy and accurate, let us know! 

What if I have a show I want to make available? Contact Robin Gee, Swaparama Coordinator at robin.gee@smgov.net to find out what’s involved. We can make the DVD copies for you if you provide a master. By the way, sorry, providing shows doesn’t give you a free admission to the event, just the opportunity to share your great programming with your fellow local cable programmers. 

 

SCAN NATOA CHAPTER MEETING

APPS FOR CITIES

Thurs., January 30, 2014 | San Francisco City Hall Room 34 | 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
 Meeting Postponed

SPEAKERS:
Andy Maimoni – City and County of San Francisco 311
| Sumorwuo Zaza - PublicStuff 

Citizens across the country are asking their cities to deliver more services, faster and more efficiently than ever before. Cities are responding valiantly - providing the same level of service, with fewer and fewer resources. New technology, such as CRMs and mobile applications, have proven key to their efforts. Should such tools be developed in-house? Or should cities focus on IT strategy and service delivery, and leave it to specialists to drive product development and innovation? Come learn basic to advanced steps in setting up apps from our experts.  Whether using mobile device communications to facilitate intra-agency activities, or using mobile apps to better inform our communities, local agencies can’t afford to be left out of the this new wave of interaction. 

Andy Maimoni is the Deputy Director of the City and County of San Francisco’s 311 System.  San Francisco has led the way in engaging with and serving residents in an open and accessible way, 24 x 7 with the San Francisco 311 Customer Service Center. From a call center, to a self-service website, to an ever-expanding list of communication channels, the city needed to ensure that the millions of requests for services and information received annually are quickly and cost-effectively processed. 

Sumorwuo Zaza is a Regional Manager at PublicStuff where he works with cities across the country to implement solutions that help them better engage their communities. His prior experience includes working in the City of Newark and as a consultant for Booz & Company. He has a BA in Government with a Secondary in Economics from Harvard College.

SCAN NATOA CHAPTER MEETING

October 10, 2013

STORY-TELLING WORKSHOP WITH PHOTOJOURNALIST LES ROSE

 Calling all photographers, producers and writers! SCAN-NATOA presents a story-telling workshop with award-winning CBS News photojournalist Les Rose.  Part of the famous CBS News team of Steve Hartman and Les Rose, the two traveled around the country and could come up with a story on virtually anything.  Their most popular series called “Everybody Has A Story” produced stories on people whose names were pulled at random from a phone book!  They learned everyone is interesting in some way and you don’t need the most expensive equipment or a team of news professionals to get a great story.  For more on Les > http://LesRoseOnline.com/

 Les Rose will show you how you can do it, too.  He’ll teach you the importance of character development, how to improve writing and lighting, and the value of humor and heart in a story. He’ll give you samples of his work and pass along his broad experience from covering stories all over the world.  They range from 9/11 stories in Pennsylvania and New York City, to natural disasters to celebrity interviews.  He’s made presentations to The Poynter Institute, N.P.P.A., RTNDA with Al Tompkins, NATOA and many other organizations around the country.  Don’t miss his SCAN-NATOA presentation; it will be the best video production training session of the year.
