Panel - Industry Perspectives (Presented at Networking 2000)

Saturday, January 1, 2000


The federal policy presence of information technology companies has increased dramatically over the last decade. IT companies now realize that conveying their views to Congress and federal regulators is vital to their strategic long-term growth. Panelists discuss federal policy issues important to their company and industry, and whether they have a particular legislative agenda they are pursuing. Panelists include: Dennis Bone, President and CEO, Bell Atlantic-West Virginia; Greg Farmer, Vice President of Government Relations and International Trade, Nortel Networks; Michael N. Liebhold, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Tachyon, Inc.; Todd Needham, Manager, Research Programs Group, Microsoft Corporation; James E. Williams, Director of Policy Analysis & Government Relations, EDUCAUSE.
