Exceptional Circumstances (notice): The notice of this meeting is being published on less than 15 days notice due to exceptional circumstances. It is critical that the TAC conduct this meeting to organize itself and its subgroups as soon as possible in order to develop recommendations regarding 4G and other broadband technologies that will be deployed beginning next year, as well as developing recommendations more generally for job creation in the broadband sector. However, the only date this year that all TAC members could attend, and at which sufficient meeting space is available at the agency, is November 4th. Failure to meet on this date would push this important meeting back into 2011 and jeopardize the ability of the TAC to fulfill its mission within the time frame sought by the Commission. Recognizing the late Federal Register publication, the agency also issued a Public Notice of this meeting on Monday, October 25th, in an effort to mitigate the late Federal Register publication and as an additional way of advising the public of this meeting and their right to attend.
