The Centergy, Portage County Business Council, Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce and Marshfield Chamber of Commerce are partnering with the Wisconsin Economic Development Association to offer a morning of exceptional programming designed to inform and educate small businesses and economic development professionals on Workforce Development strategies, resources and tools.

The first sessions will focus on strategies being used by central Wisconsin employers to meet their talent requirements. After a break, the sessions will concentrate on data and marketing tools that businesses and communities can use in their marketing and outreach efforts.

After Workforce Sessions – WEDA invites you to join the DNR Small Business Environmental Council Luncheon – Limited Seating Available

The Small Business Environmental Council is an appointed body of business representatives and leaders that focus on helping Wisconsin’s Small Businesses work with the DNR. Join us for a lunch forum and share your ideas and experiences while finding out how the Council can help you.

If you develop properties, or own or operate a business where you use solvents, use a boiler, paint or coat, repair vehicles, electroplate, fabricate, handle grain, manufacture, print, service or use refrigeration equipment, work with wood or just have questions about environmental regulations, this forum is for you!

The Council helps make sure that the DNR serves the small business community in smart and effective ways by advising the DNR about how existing rules affect small businesses, providing a small business perspective on proposed regulations, and helping make DNR documents easier to understand.  The governor and the legislature appoint seven members of the Council and the eighth is from the DNR.  Together, they serve as the voice of Wisconsin’s small businesses at the DNR.  Registration for the limited seating luncheon is available when you register for the conference. Lunch is being provided by WEDA.
