Jay County Broadband Fireside Chat – Video

On April 6th, 2023, at 5 p.m., the Jay County Development Corporation hosted a conference at its headquarters in Portland, IN, to discuss the basics of broadband infrastructure, why it’s important, and what Jay County has been doing to build it out and support the community.

This conference was hosted by Travis Richards, the Executive Director of the JCDC, alongside Gary Thompson— an American Connection Corps Fellow serving as an AmeriCorps Service Member with the East Central Indiana Regional Planning District, an initiative of Lead for America and the American Connection Project—who has been working on this broadband infrastructure project for Jay County as well as others like it. According to Thompson, this meeting was a success. To those who were unable to attend, click here to view the conference.
