Guest Speaker: Chris Imlay

Chris Imlay, SBE's General Counsel, will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, May 8th.  Along with input from various SBE committees and the SBE Executive Board, Chris represents SBE's interests before the FCC and other government agencies and has done so for many years.  He also keeps us informed with his Legal Perspective article in the SBE publication The Signal and his presentation before Chapter 37 last May (2018). 

As those who attended last May's meeting can attest, Mr. Imlay is a superb public speaker who always seems to have something interesting on his mind.  Thus, we've again given him carte blanche regarding discussion topics.  While we expect him to bring us up-to-date on current technical regulatory topics, spectrum allocations, and broadcast auxiliary spectrum issues, there no telling where the discussion will go. We're certain you'll find the presentation to be interesting and informative.

Chris Imlay, Managing Member, Booth, Freret & Imlay, LLC, has practiced Federal Communications Law for the bulk of his professional career to date. His other communications clients include the American Radio Relay League, the national association of broadcast and communications technical professionals; JVC Kenwood USA Corporation; the National Football League; Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company; Robert Bosch, GmbH; Broadcast Sports, Inc.; numerous television and radio broadcast, common carrier, and private wireless licensees of the FCC; video production companies and manufacturers of communications and electronic equipment.  His work for the amateur and broadcast engineering associations include preparation of materials in FCC rule making and adjudicatory proceedings, consultation with local chapters and members, extensive representation of communications users, and consulting with local counsel for those users, in connection with Federal, state and local regulation of Federally-licensed communications facilities.

A bite to eat, kindly provided by Brian Szewczyk and our friends at GatesAir, will be served at 6:30 pm. We'll have a bit of Chapter 37 business about 7:00 pm, and our presentation will follow shortly thereafter. PLEASE RSVP before NOON Tuesday, May 7th by sending a brief e-mail to meet@sbe37.org and let us know that we should expect you!
