It is imperative that you know how to prepare and communicate during and after an emergency situation or crisis. How do you build a plan that encourages teamwork and cooperation to better your community when the unexpected occurs? How do you use that same plan to rebuild?

    Yes, it's true, we are moving the conference to a new location this year! The Union Depot in St. Paul will be hosting the MACTA Annual Conference and Trade Show on Thursday, June 13. The Union Depot is in a prime location right next to TPT Public Television, which will be part of the conference!  

    Oh, did we mention that the conference is also being catered by CRAVE?  Don’t worry about downtown parking, because we have you covered. There are parking lots underneath and alongside the venue, and you will receive a free parking voucher at the conference!

    Don’t forget about the Trade Show with what could be another record number of vendors and sponsors showcasing technology for PEG. You might even win a cool prize playing Trade Show Bingo!

    There will be a lot to see and learn at the 36th Annual MACTA Conference and Trade Show, so make sure you save the date on your calendar now - Thursday, June 13!

    CTN is also sponsoring a Saints Baseball outing shortly after the conference. Beautiful CHS field is only a few blocks away from Union Depot and you can stay parked in the same parking lot for the 7pm game! More details and registration information coming soon!

    This past year has seen a whirlwind of new FCC regulations and, in some cases, state legislation, limiting local governments' ability to manage wireless facilities in the public rights-of-way. The FCC's Third Report and Order of 2018 has altered the regulatory landscape and has forced local governments to change their methods of managing these facilities. This session will address the key highlights and local interpretations of the Order, the status of the litigation challenging the Order, and will conclude with recommendations for asserting municipal rights to manage the rights-of-way consistent with current federal and state law.
