Committees

USTelecom’s Committees provide a means for members to become involved with the association and play a role in strategy, policy, and education for our member base.

Current USTelecom Committees and their areas of focus are:

Regulatory Affairs – policy development and advocacy before the Federal Communications Commission and other agencies
Governmental Affairs – our association’s work on Capitol Hill
External Affairs – media advocacy, public relations, and strategic communications
Tax Policy – tax and financial policy matters
Engineering & Technology Policy – a variety of technology issues and standards including numbering, IP services, open source software, network neutrality, DPI, and emerging technologies
Intellectual Property and Privacy – issues surrounding the ownership and distribution of content and protection of consumer information
National Security and Public Safety – cybersecurity, national security, emergency preparedness, and pandemic planning

Other committees are regularly formed on an ad hoc basis to address hot topics, such as universal service, intercarrier compensation, video competition, Smart Grid, and much more.  If you, your colleagues, or key executives in your company would like to participate on one or more of these committees, please contact us.
