Don’t miss this special one-day workshop for California Advanced Services Fund Grant Applicants to provide a productive forum for discussion on what to expect in a post-award environment. The purpose of this training is to share our collective experience, knowledge and resources with the applicants as they attempt to navigate the hurdles associated with the build-out and operation of broadband to un-served and under-served areas of California.

What is the Robert Ringman Scholarship Fund?
The Robert Ringman Scholarship Fund, formerly the “Robert A. Ringman Memorial Living Trust” was established by the California Telecommunications Group, a combined effort of the California Telephone Association (CTA) and the Independent Telephone Pioneer Association (ITPA) California Chapter. The Trust is designed to recognize the importance of education in the telephone industry family and to provide reward and incentive for family members to continue their search for educational excellence. Scholarships are awarded annually to one or more students and announced at CalCom’s Annual Conference Awards Ceremony. The Trust is established to provide scholarships on an ongoing basis. Funding for the Trust is provided through corporate and personal contributions, and through part of the proceeds from golf tournaments held by CalCom and the Volcano Memorial Golf Tournament.
Who is Robert Ringman?
Robert A Ringman was a true telephone industry leader. He dedicated his career, spanning 40 years, to the growth and success of the telephone industry. Starting as a draftsman in 1947 and progressing to the position of president of an independent telephone company, he developed a thorough understanding of the industry. Bob Ringman was to make his most important leadership mark on the telephone industry in his “second career” beginning in 1969 as the EVP of the Oregon Independent Telephone Association (now Oregon Telecommunications Association) and then later, in 1979, with the California Independent Telephone Association (CITA) (then becoming CTA) and now CalCom. Through his association efforts Bob was widely known and respected for his industry knowledge, his understanding of the often difficult issues, and his ability to work successfully for a viable telephone industry. Bob was the EVP of the California “Independent” Telephone Association from 1970 to his sudden death in 1988.
