Since its founding in 1969,  NTCA Rural Broadband PAC has given financial support to numerous Congressional candidates who have demonstrated a concern for the unique issues associated with telecommunications in rural America.
John Brown has served as the Arkansas representative on the PAC board of directors since 2008.  In acknowledgement of John's award, Michelle Ly, Advocacy Programs Manager for NTCA, stated "throughout his tenure on the board, he has provided strategic guidance in raising funds for the PAC and leveraging the contributions when presenting funds to Congressional candidates. In particular, he has increased the participation of vendors in the PAC. He has also coordinated a number of presentations of funds from the PAC to candidates, ensuring the industry was well recognized for the contribution.  His leadership and efforts on behalf of the rural telecommunications industry are greatly appreciated".  John also serves at the State Coordinator for the Legislative & Policy Conferences.
