“These local, county, state, and Tribal leaders offer the Commission valuable perspectives on how we can work together to connect the American people,” said Chairwoman Rosenworcel.  “I thank the Committee members for their willingness to serve, and I look forward to their input.”

According to the news release on the City of Marietta website:

The Commission recently announced the reauthorization of the IAC and sought nominations for membership to the committee, which will operate for two years. It is an official advisory committee made up of members appointed by the Chairwoman who, together as a body, make recommendations to the Commission on issues related to increasing deployment and adoption of broadband services and any other task necessary to help local, state, and Tribal government officials clarify or explain Commission rules and policies to their constituents and other members of the public. The IAC will welcome 30 new and returning members.
