I am pleased to announce that Charles P. (Charlie) Wapner begins work today as an information policy analyst. Charlie will work on a broad range of topics that includes copyright, licensing, telecommunications and E-rate, and provide support for our new Policy Revolution! initiative sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Charlie comes to the American Library Association from the Office of Representative Ron Barber (D-AZ) where he was a legislative fellow. Earlier, Charlie also served as a legislative correspondent for Representative Mark Critz (D-PA). Charlie also interned in the offices of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell. After completing his B.A. in Diplomatic History at the University of Pennsylvania, Charlie received his M.S. in public policy and management from Carnegie Mellon University.
We look forward to Charlie’s help in advancing our efforts on many different fronts.
