Hi Maggie, as a state employee who works with members of local communities, how could I connected them with the existing digital inclusion planning groups.
Institute for Emerging Issues
Can I assume that your Power Point will be available following this presentation?
All 16 COGS have a CEDS
I need to leave early. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there a database/list to see who’s already working on digital inclusion in regions/counties?
Recently retired, I’ve become involved as a volunteer with several community organizations whose missions and constituents touch in various ways on the issues raised this afternoon. There are other entities that are (or should be) more officially involved in digital inclusion planning … So should we approach those entities first, to determine where they are in the process? Or should we explore how to take advantage of the state-level resource identified today?
Are there any other participants on this call in the Fayetteville/Cumberland County, NC area?
We have worked with this group on translating surveys and reaching Spanish speaking community stakeholders: http://www.amexcannc.org/

Goodwill may have language services for digital inclusion.
What is the "next frontier" of digital inclusion? Obviously most of these issues are evergreen, but are there any issues that may not be a pressing focus today, but could end up being an important part of a workshop like this 10 years in the future? What are the key features of a future-proof digital inclusion plan?
It would be interesting to hear how Internet service providers would answer that question
IWill be in touch
Thank you for the opportunity to share our progress. There is still much work left to be done.
Echoed in our group- hardest part is getting the right people involved from the start
Would love to talk fait! firstname.lastname@example.org
