On 20 November 2002, the Phoenix Center held its Annual U.S. Telecoms Symposium in Washington, D.C. to a “standing room only” crowd. The theme of this year’s Symposium was: How Do We Go From “One” to “Many”? What Do We Need to Do to Create a Vibrant Wholesale Market for “Last Mile” Local Access?
Not only were we privileged to have a stellar list of participants explore this important theme and to have Senator Byron L. Dorgan accept our 2002 Jerry B. Duvall Public Service Award, but also the National Association of State Regulatory Utility Commissioners used the Phoenix Center's Symposium to announce a major advocacy initiative.
To satisfy the many requests for the conference materials, we are pleased to post the following slide presentations:

Because not everyone used slides at the Symposium, the Phoenix Center is presently working on publishing a formal academic book with essays and papers from each of the Speakers.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make this year's Symposium such a great success and we look forward to everyone attending the 2003 Symposium.
