Tech Prom to Feature FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler
Written by Brian Wesolowski
CDT’s Annual Dinner, known as Tech Prom by the cool kids, is taking place this March 10, 2015 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center here in DC. It’s a night where the tech policy community comes together for great networking and CDT gets to thank everyone for their support.
While the night really is focused on having a good time and socializing with leaders in tech policy, we do have a short and exciting program during the dinner. This year, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will be giving the keynote remarks – which you will not want to miss.
Chairman Wheeler has of course been in the news quite a bit recently, and next week he’ll be grabbing headlines again. On Thursday, February 26, the FCC will vote on proposed Open Internet rules. The Chairmen recently previewed the rules that will be voted on, and at the high-level they are a true victory for advocates of net neutrality and an open, equal Internet.
Tech Prom will be among Chairman Wheeler’s first public remarks following the vote on the Open Internet rules. The keynote will take the form of a conversation with CDT’s President Nuala O’Connor, making it far less formal and stuffy.
We’ll be previewing more of what to expect at our dinner over the next 2 weeks. And if you don’t have your ticket yet, there is still time to get one. Hope to see you March 10!
