“Chairman has pursued an agenda during his tenure at the FCC that includes promoting infrastructure investment and innovation and reducing regulatory burdens,” ACA President and CEO Matthew Polka said in the announcement. “This year, at our 25th Anniversary Summit, we look forward to hearing from the Chairman about his continued focus on encouraging broadband deployment. Moreover, we look forward to getting a preview of the year ahead and having a conversation about other matters important to the cable industry.” 

Since being appointed FCC chairman in January 2017 by President Donald Trump, Pai has led the FCC in a number of big developments, including the elimination of the main studio rule, the approval of voluntary rollouts of ATSC 3.0 and he has been a big proponent of deregulation.
