Purpose of Webinars
With small cell deployment legislation passing in 20 states and the recent Federal Communications Commission's streamlining small cell deployment ruling and with more bills coming down the pipeline early next year, SmartWorks Partners is now hosting a Nationwide Small Cell Legislation Webinar Series.
While we are FOR the technology, we are opposed to the way carriers and federal bureaucrats are seeking to bypass municipalities' local authority when it comes to what is being placed in their ROW and forcing cities to accept less than fair market value for collocation to their assets.
Our goal in providing these presentations is to unite cities from all across America to be a part of the conversation, understand how these rulings and legislation will negatively impact municipalities, and identify best practices in moving forward to protect cities' ROW.

She has been invited to speak at Next Century Cities and NATOA events along with several local city council meetings. As of recent, she partnered up with the National League of Cities to present a webinar concerning the FCC Streamlining Small Cells order.
