Guest Speaker: Chris Imlay

Chris Imlay, SBE's General Counsel, will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, May 12th.  You'll be able to participate in this virtual meeting via Zoom sponsored by Mary Schnelle and our friends from Broadcasters Depot.  Here's a hyperlink to the Zoom invitation.

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 annual presentations before Chapter 37 since 2015. 

As those who attended his prior meetings 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.

Special thanks to Broadcasters Depot for sponsoring the video conference and other technical support costs of Chapter 37.  Please use this hyperlink to acquire an invitation. We normally establish the Zoom call about 6:00 pm, begin Chapter 37 business about 6:30 pm, and introduce our guest speaker shortly thereafter.  To save valuable time, we are now asking attendees to introduce themselves only via the Zoom chat function.  If desired, you can add your affiliation or employee company name to your name.  We look forward to (virtually) seeing you soon!
