ICN Issue 9 - June 2023

In this issue:

Issue 9 of Independent Communications News (ICN) is hot off the presses and ready to be added to your summer reading list! This issue’s main highlight is a review of Grant Spellmeyer’s first year as President & CEO of ACA Connects, including his meetings with ACAC Members, Members of Congress, and #AMP23 Members! Sprinkle in some key industry events that he attended – like the Cable Hall of Fame celebration in New York City, NCTC and other Regional Meetings, the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, and, of course, our ACAC 30th Anniversary Summit – and you’ll see that he’s been a busy guy! Be sure to read his article as he looks back on year number one with the association and some of the challenges ahead in year number two.

Also included in this issue of ICN are articles about the upcoming Independent Show in Minneapolis, Minn., from July 30 to August 2. We have a fantastic schedule of sessions, breakouts, exhibits, and networking planned for our attendees! ACA Connects EVP & COO John Higginbotham, ACA Connects Chairman Patricia Jo Boyers and NCTC VP of Marketing and Communications Pam Gillies all talk about why it’s MORE important than ever to join us this year!

So, take a moment to check out all the content that was curated specifically for ACA Connects Members! And if there’s something YOU would like to see in an upcoming issue, please let us know!
