About NEBSA

The National EBS Association (NEBSA)

is a non-profit corporation renamed from the National ITFS Association in 2007 to bridge the "Present to the Future" 

NEBSA Bridging Vision

NEBSA's "Vision" is  to accomplish this objective by providing mission critical information and resources for the creation, delivery, installation, implementation and maintenance of Educational Broadband Service (EBS) to all current and prospective EBS licensees.                                   

NEBSA's "Goals" are to be the leading advocate for use of the spectrum set aside for education by the FCC, to represent the interests of EBS licensees at the FCC, and to provide an expanded forum for exchange of   information and advice on the new technologies, new educational applications, and commer- cial relationships. 

Executive Summary

The National EBS Association (NEBSA) is the professional association for those institutions who hold EBS (formerly ITFS) licenses.

 

The membership is composed of representatives from K12, post secondary and other education-related non-profit entities, many of whom have operated EBS systems for a number of years. 

 

NEBSA members share information with one another and the association organizes an Annual Conference each year, typically in February, to discuss issues of importance to members.

Additionally, the National EBS Association (NEBSA) is a non-profit corporation established in 2007 to form a bridge from the present  to the future via a "Vision" of the past, the present and the future for EBS/ ITFS.

NEBSA will continue the objectives set for NIA in 1978 to provide avenues for communication among the educational institutions and non-profit organizations that hold licenses in the Educational Broadband Service spectrum band.

 

NEBSA will continue to be the leading advocate for use of the spectrum set aside for education by the FCC, to represent the interests of EBS licensees at the FCC, and to provide an expanded forum for exchange of information and advice on the new technologies, new educational applications, and commercial relationships.

 

And, NEBSA will continue to provide the means to accomplish these goals by continuing to employ FCC Counsel in Washington, D.C., maintain the NEBSA List Serve, which it makes available to all with EBS interests, and conduct an Annual Conference and Meeting in which experts in the fields of FCC Rules, education, and technologies provide attendees with the most current information and developments in their fields.
