REPLY COMMENTS TO THE FCC
The initial deadline for comments regarding the FCC’s proposed rulemaking has passed, but filings in reply to comments made before the deadline will be accepted until December 14th at 11:59 pm. We encourage all of you to file reply comments.
You probably saw the request for comments and the template provided by the ACM. We think their strategy of soliciting support from churches, schools and other non-profits. This is an extremely important audience to reach and we hope you will utilize their template. In order to increase the scope of comments to the FCC, MassAccess is encouraging you to also engage with your local legislators and ask them to file support comments.
We’ve adapted the ACM’s template for this use and ask that if you are successful in persuading representatives and senators to file, please add them to the list we are amassing. The purpose of the list is to thank the legislators publicly and to use as a show of strength in future dealings with the FCC.
 
CREATOR AWARDS DEADLINE
The Second Annual Massachusetts Creator Awards take place at ICON Night Club in Boston on January 29, 2019. Did you know each entry gets two FREE admission tickets? The deadline for entries is THIS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH!
FIRST FRIDAY CONFERENCE CALL
All MassAccess members are encouraged to join the First Friday Conference Call. We are actually POSTPONING the call until the SECOND Friday – December 14th at 11 am. We are also switching over to Uber Conference, so please use the new link below.
MEMBERSHIP PRICES TO INCREASE
At our last meeting, the MassAccess Board voted to increase the prices for membership starting in 2019. This is not an easy decision, as we all know first hand how difficult balancing a budget can be. In the end, we just feel that the costs we’re incurring in lobbying and legal are getting to be too much with our current level of income. The good news is that if you renew BEFORE January 1, 2019, you can still get in for the whole calendar year at the 2018 price. After 1/1/19, the prices will change, but the budget ranges will stay the same.
PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION
In the spirit of giving, please consider a donation to MassAccess Legal Fund. And for those MANY stations and individuals who already have contributed, we thank you for your generosity. The outcry of support has been the fuel that keeps the MassAccess board running. We are lucky to have so many engaged and supportive members. Thank you!
