Ms. Melissa Semidey of AT&T was recently elected to serve as a member of the NYSWA board of directors for a minimum two-year term. Melissa is the Senior Real Estate and Construction Manager of Network Operations within upstate New York. She is responsible for managing the zoning and leasing of over a thousand cell sites across New York State. Before working at AT&T, Melissa was an associate at Phillips Lytle LLP where she focused her practice in telecommunications and real estate law, and acted as outside counsel for various carriers and tower companies. Even back then she was an active volunteer with NYSWA, participating in many events. Her experience has given her a broad and unique perspective of both the business and legal challenges faced by our industry and those talents and experiences will be put to good use as Melissa participates on the NYSWA Regulatory Committee. Melissa received a B.A. from Cornell University in 2005, a J.D. from George Washington University in 2008 and was admitted to practice law in New York State in 2009. Congratulations and Welcome Melissa!!
