FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will be among the speakers at the White House's Nov. 20 launch of a program to connect military veterans with jobs in the wireless industry.
Wheeler is former president of CTIA: The Wireless Association as well as helming an agency currently trying to free up more spectrum to help grow those wireless businesses.
The White House and Joining Force (which supports military families) is joining forces with wireless industry private sector partners--they were not identified--to outline the new initiative at an event at the Old Executive Office Building, which is adjacent to the White House.
The effort is billed as "a new nonprofit initiative to connect veterans and returning service members to jobs in the rapidly growing wireless telecommunications industry."
