Events


Our members inform us that the discussions and networking at these events are extremely valuable

The BMMA holds two annual face-to-face meetings. The BMMA Annual Meeting (spring) is co-located with ResearchFirst’s Broadband Services Seminar, allowing members to save on travel expenses while continuing the learning and networking through out the week. The Fall Workshop is typically hosted by one of our member companies and may include tours of the local facilities.

Our monthly Hot Topic Webinars cover current and relevant broadband marketing issues. These interactive sessions are typically led by an industry leader from the membership.

Upcoming Hot Topic Webinar:

Held monthly typically every 4th Tuesday at 2PM Central. This date and time may fluctuate some months as a result of holidays and other issues, so be sure to check for updates.
