This year the longest-running BEA convention session in history begins with a special presentation of the first BEA Law and Policy Division “Lifetime Achievement Award” to former FCC Chairman Richard E. Wiley, who currently heads the Wiley Rein LLP communications law practice in Washington, DC.   As part of his long career in public service and private law practice, Wiley served as Chairman of the FCC’s Advisory Committee on Advanced Television Service – a group that played a key role in the development of digital television and HDTV in the United States.   His address to BEA will offer his perspectives on today’s key communications challenges and developments.

Following the presentation of the award and remarks from its recipient, the annual panel presentation will address a wide range of important legal and policy issues being addressed by Congress, the Administration, the FCC and other agencies, as well as in the states and in academia. Representatives of the federal government and industry trade associations, plus leading communications law and technical experts will provide attendees with insights and answers on a wide range of topics relating to electronic communications and media.
