NSMA Board Meeting



Each year, NSMA hosts an annual conference to bring together a diverse group of participants to discuss the latest spectrum-related trends and developments. The conference’s topic areas are as diverse as the participants, and with increasing spectrum congestion, reallocations, sharing, and repurposing, it’s more important than ever to understand the radio spectrum environment from all angles. The NSMA conference is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with representatives from all sectors of the wireless industry.
