Chairwoman Rosenworcel Announces Leadership of the World Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee

From the FCC:

WASHINGTON, May 17, 2024—Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel today announced her appointments of Jayne Stancavage and Kimberly Baum as Chair and Vice Chair of the Commission’s World Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee. The advisory committee was re-chartered on January 31, 2024 with the mission of providing the Commission with advice, technical support, and recommended proposals for the International Telecommunication Union’s World Radiocommunication Conference, which will be held in 2027.

“The next World Radiocommunication Conference provides an opportunity to promote U.S. leadership in the growing space economy, as well as in next-generation communications services. With so much at stake, we will be relying on this advisory committee to help develop strong proposals for the Conference,” said Chairwoman Rosenworcel. “Jayne and Kim have both served on several previous iterations of this committee, including in leadership positions at the working group level, and between them, have attended eleven World Radio Conferences. This depth of experience will prove invaluable to the committee as it develops recommendations.” Jayne Stancavage is the Vice President of Policy and Regulatory Affairs at Intel Corporation. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for both the United States Telecommunications Training Institute and the Open RAN Policy Coalition, and is also on the Global mobile Suppliers (GSA) Executive Committee. Ms. Stancavage received both her bachelor's and master's degrees in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Kimberly Baum is the Vice President of Spectrum Engineering and Strategy at Eutelsat Group. Her previous positions in the satellite industry include policy and engineering roles at Echostar Corporation, SES Americom, Motorola, and Astrolink. Ms. Baum began her career at the FCC, where she was an electronics engineer in the Office of Engineering and Technology and later in the International Bureau. Ms. Baum received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the George Washington University. The World Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to provide to the FCC public views and recommendations in preparation for the next World Radiocommunication Conference. The World Radiocommunication Conference is a treaty-level forum held by the International Telecommunication Union (a United Nations agency) every three to four years in which countries decide on the allocation of frequency spectrum to allow the deployment or growth of all types of radiocommunication services such as wireless, broadcasting, satellite, and aeronautical services. Gregory Baker in the Office of International Affairs serves as the Designated Federal Officer to the Committee.
