Building Smart(er) Communities

  • Sentry World 601 N. Michigan Avenue Stevens Point, WI 54481 United States (map)

Mark your calendar and give a “shout out” to your local leaders—city and county officials, school district administrators, board members, legislators, hospital administrators, etc.—to do the same. WiscNet is hosting its second annual Building Smart(er) Communities symposium to learn how community anchor institutions (schools, libraries, cities, counties, libraries, healthcare, and non-profit agencies) can use the framework of a Community Area Network (CAN) to build a consortium that focuses on the social, economic, and technological values of their constituents.


Smart(er) communities, rural and urban, collaborate and use collective resources to create a place for people of all ages to live, work, and thrive in 21st-century environments that require robust data and broadband connections. Topics such as 5G networks and “Smart” communities, collaborative leadership, growing rural/urban economies, making the most of limited budgets, and accelerating the implementation of new digital solutions will be a focus of this forum. Listen, learn and share during this one-day event to connect agency and state-wide leaders and make a difference for your community today and in the future.
