Dave Clark, president of Impulse Advanced Communications, a Santa Barbara-based provider of voice and data communications services, attended the 2012 Annual Meeting and Lobby Day of the California Association of Competitive Telecommunications Companies.

The meeting, held recently in Sacramento, provides an opportunity for CALTEL members to discuss regulatory and legislative initiatives important to entrepreneurial telecommunications companies such as Impulse Advanced Communications. The members also review bills in the Legislature that CALTEL supports, opposes or is monitoring.

CALTEL is a nonprofit trade group that promotes fair and open competition and customer-focused service in California telecommunications.

The event’s Lobby Day, which Clark attended, allows executives to speak directly with key legislators and regulators about initiatives crucial to the ability of telecommunications companies to deploy next-generation networks in California, such as Impulse Broadband Ethernet, which Impulse Advanced Communications rolled out recently to meet the demands of businesses in south Santa Barbara County.

Among the officials attending were Camille Wagner, legislative secretary from the office of Gov. Jerry Brown; Assemblyman Steve Bradford, D-Inglewood, chair of the Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee; California Public Utilities Commission Commissioner Catherine Sandoval; and state Sen. Jean Fuller, R-Bakersfield, vice chair of the Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
