WISPA Conference

By November 15, 2022Uncategorized

At DC Access, we believe in the power of community both in our neighborhood and within industry.  With more than twenty years in business, we are proud to be a respected member and leader in WISPA (Wireless Internet Service Providers Association).

Co-founder Martha Huizenga recently connected with WISPA members at their October conference in Las Vegas.  She moderated a panel discussing the marketing and public relations needs for wireless internet service providers.  She is also attending several panels regarding tech, business, regulatory, and human resources.  DC Access is keeping a particular pulse on new regulatory reporting requirements from the FCC.

And perhaps the most fulfilling piece of the conference was Martha’s participation on the panel for Women of WISPA entitled “Encourage, Inspire, Connect.”  Women of WISPA is an open forum for members of WISPA who seek the advancement of women in the telecommunications industry.  

Martha recounted attending her first WISPA conference several years ago with just four women in attendance.  This year, we sat surrounded by dozens of women, each pillars of our community in their own right.  The roo

m was packed for the WoW panel.  Martha said, “We’ve come a long way and we need to keep encouraging others.”

We couldn’t agree more. WISPA has come a long way in recent years, but there is still much work to be done. We look forward to continuing to encourage others to join the association and get involved in the community. Only by working together can we hope to achieve our goals.

DC Access is internet simplified and that comes with keeping a pulse within our service area and our industry.  What a way to do it by connecting with others at WISPA 2022. Thank you for having us, we love being a part of this community!
