Connecting people in various ways is what ACA Connects and its members have been doing for more than two decades. At its 26th Summit yesterday, Matt Polka announced the name change from the American Cable Association to America’s Communications Association (aka ACA Connects). In the above interview, Polka points out that they purposely kept technology out of the name. Other topics Polka touches upon, include:
- Community involvement is weaved into the fabric of ACA Connects’ members
- Breaking down silos in government regulation, as mentioned by FCC Commissioner O’Reilly in his comments
- Retransmission and STELAR (Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization)
- His interview with House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and how Scalise, with the Next Generation Television Marketplace Act, and Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo are working across the aisle to modernize retransmission consent.
