The Wyoming State Broadband Advisory Council is seeking applications for an empty council seat.

Interested parties should email a letter of interest and a list of qualifications explaining why they would be a valuable addition to the Council to broadbandcouncil@wyo.gov by August 23, 2019.

The Wyoming Legislature created the Broadband Advisory Council during its 2018 session to expand broadband opportunities in the state.

Advisory Council members provide advice and make recommendations to the Business Council on:

  • An inventory and map of current broadband availability and identification of areas of the state unserved by broadband technology;
  • Needs, practices and technologies for providing broadband services in the most efficient manner possible; and
  • Ensuring state and local policies are conducive to development of broadband services 

The Advisory Council is made up of representatives from across the state with different interests and backgrounds, including economic development, government, broadband service, technology-related businesses, health care, education, library services and public safety.

Advisory Council members will receive per diem and travel expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.
