Description

Tom Wheeler, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission under President Obama, will appear for the first time in Silicon Valley to deliver remarks on his vision for national telecommunications policy. Wheeler became the 31st Chairman of the FCC on November 4.

For more than three decades, Chairman Wheeler has been involved with new telecommunications networks and services, experiencing the revolution in telecommunications as a policy expert, an advocate, and a businessman. The FCC’s approach to regulation, technology innovation and market growth is of critical importance to Silicon Valley and the nation, and this will be the first opportunity for West Coast audiences to hear from Chairman Wheeler personally since his confirmation.

Following Chairman Wheeler's remarks he will sit for a Q&A session with Museum President & CEO, John Hollar.
