Greetings everyone!

There are big changes on the E-rate horizon! E-rate is an important program to many libraries. Whether you have participated in E-rate in the past, or are looking to apply for first time, you will want to know about the changes.  This federal program provides discounts to assist schools and public libraries in the United States to obtain affordable Internet access and connections. Join us to learn about the new E-Rate Productivity Center (EPC), and new ways to file forms, track application status and communicate with the FCC.

There are two important opportunities for training regarding the new E-rate coming up!

The first is a free 90-minute webinar in October:

Title: E-rate: What's New for 2016
Date: October 29, 2015
Time: 12:00p - 1:30p Pacific Time
Cost: Free
This workshop will cover the basics of the E-rate program and demonstrate how to access and use your EPC account to submit your Funding Year 2016 E-rate application. Get the information you need to be successful in your application.
