Guest Speaker
Bill Soards, President-Colorado, AT&T

Appointed in April of 2009, Soards is responsible for all external affairs for AT&T in the state which includes state and local government relations, community affairs, regulatory and legislative activities, and initiatives before the Colorado General Assembly and Colorado’s Public Utilities Commission. Prior to becoming state president, Soards was Assistant Vice President of Public Affairs for AT&T’s Midwest region working in Chicago, IL. Coordinating public policy campaigns, managing research, message development, third parties, and foundation activities in five Midwestern states were among his chief responsibilities. Soards began his career in public policy in 1994 as a partner at Livengood Soards & Associates in Indianapolis, IN. In 2000, he joined AT&T (then Ameritech) as Director of Government Relations. In 2006, Soards helped lead the state effort to deregulate the telecom industry and establish a statewide system for cable franchising and video competition. That legislation, The Indiana Telecom Reform Act, was signed into law in March of 2006 by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and continues to attract jobs and investment across the state.
