Transforming Your Workforce

We believe in developing a highly skilled rural telecom workforce equipped to meet the future demands of customers and drive company success.

NTCA events bring together top rural telecom professionals, thought leaders and experts who share real-world strategies, success stories, and the latest trends and solutions.

The association’s signature conferences include the Rural Telecom Industry Meeting & Expo, Fall Conference, Regional Conferences and the Legislative & Policy Conference.




Rural Telecom Industry Meeting & Expo

February 25–28, 2018, Austin, TX

Our biggest event of the year delivers education on public policy, technology, health care,
community development and advocacy to help you achieve success.

Fall Conference

The NTCA Fall Conference is an opportunity for directors, telco executives and key employees to learn about industry and regulatory updates with a focus on management and leadership strategies. The Fall Conference occurs approximately six months after the Rural Telecom Industry Meeting & Expo and serves as a midpoint opportunity for refreshers on technology and discussions of hot topics via roundtable sessions. Attendees also engage in multiple networking events and attend fundraising events hosted by the NTCA Rural Broadband PAC and the Foundation for Rural Services.

NTCA Regional Conferences are conveniently located across the nation so you can choose a location that best suits your travel arrangements. Designed for all management levels and commercial and cooperative board members, the conferences  deliver a one-and-a-half-day experience to discuss commercial and cooperative board governance and gain insight into industry developments. These small-group settings provide the perfect venue to share and exchange ideas on advancing technologies, get updates on regulatory and legislative issues, and understand the changing landscape of rural telecommunications.

Through out the year, the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) and NTCA Rural Broadband PAC hold special events during NTCA conferences and seminars.
