WISPA is looking for members to join one of several committees or become a state coordinator to support our growing advocacy and educational efforts. If you can contribute your insights and a relatively small amount of time, it can have a huge impact on our industry and very likely your own professional satisfaction. If interested, please contact the committee chair listed herein.



The Best Practices Committee is looking to add up to 10 members interested in developing a variety of best practices to aid member businesses in areas of technical, business, insurance, leases, grounding, etc.

Qualifications/Skills Sought: Long-term industry experience or vendor members with best practice solutions.

Est. Monthly Time Commitment: 1-2 Hours

Initial Term: Jan-July 2019

Chairman: Chuck Hogg

Please email chogg@allpointsbroadband.com if you're interested.



The Policy Committee is responsible for determining and prioritizing WISPA’s legislative and regulatory policy efforts and providing regular feedback to WISPA’s government affairs team. We’re seeking to add new members to the committee in an effort to gain greater input from a wide cross-section of WISPA members as we move forward.

Qualifications/Skills Sought: Any input is welcome. Small operators are strongly encouraged to join us.

Est. Monthly Time Commitment: 2-3 Hours

Initial Term: Indefinite

Chairman: Mark Radabaugh

Please email Mark@amplex.net if you're interested.



The new Education Committee is now being formed. Working alongside other WISPA committees, the EC endeavors to bridge the educational content gap between conferences. We are now seeking committee members that will aid in establishing policies and procedures, and once fully operational, contribute to the planning and execution of the committee’s mission – providing relevant, top-quality educational content to WISPA members and broader audiences where possible.

Qualifications/Skills Sought: We're looking for members that walk-the-walk every day and enjoy sharing what they've learned along the way.

Subject-matter experts in any of these areas are especially desired:

  • Regulation: Federal and/or State
  • Legislative
  • Business Practices
  • HR
  • Safety and/or OSHA
  • Construction
  • Consumer Experience
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Legal
  • Accounting

Est. Monthly Time Commitment: 4-8 Hours

Initial Term: Indefinite

Chairman: Tim Maylone

Please email wispa-education@cherrycapitalconnection.com if you're interested.



WISPA is looking to revitalize the State Coordinator Committee. We are making a difference for WISP’s at the federal level through our active participation. It is crucial for us, in our efforts for all WISPs, to continue the momentum by making a difference at the “grass roots” level.

State Coordinators are needed in:

  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • South Dakota
  • West Virginia

Qualifications/Skills Sought: Willing to be a leader and advocate on behalf of your state's members. Effective written and verbal communication skills.

Est. Monthly Time Commitment: It varies, but we're looking for individuals that want to make a positive difference for WISPs in their state. Initially, the role will require more time to plan and organize. Co-State Coordinators may be considered to share/split responsibilities and lessen the time burden on each.

Initial Term: Coordinators that can commit to at least two years would be ideal.

Chairman: Todd Harpest
