With the increasing number of COVID-19 cases throughout the Province, FONOM’s Board of Directors has elected to move the annual conference online.

The conference will be hosted in Timmins, and planning is now underway.

It will include the board’s annual report and finances, engagement by senior levels of government, as well as a presentation on broadband.

“It’s important that we stay connected with our membership during this time. Our committee has already started to create content that will be of interest to our region in this new format,” said FONOM President Danny Whalen, who was re-elected to the position during the Board’s most recent meeting, alongside Paul Schoppmann and Lynn Watson as vice presidents.

The virtual conference will provide a venue for the Board to connect with its membership at no charge.
