Hello Cross Plains

Welcome to June! We are very excited to begin another month of hope and opportunity for our Chamber, Businesses and our Community. As we begin to enter the Phases of the Forward Dane Plan we are eager to roll out new ways for our members to stay (and get) engaged.

We are excited to announce that our partnered Golf Outing with Northwest Dane Senior Services scheduled for Friday, September 18, 2020 at Lake Wisconsin, is on! Be sure to watch these newsletters and our Facebook Event Page for updates regarding registration, activities and unique sponsorships.

Western Dane County Solar Group Buy
If you live in western Dane County and have ever thought about adding solar to your home, this is the year to do it. Legacy Solar Co-op and community volunteers from the Town of Vermont’s Climate Action Committee have partnered with All Sky Energy and Eagle Point Solar to offer deep discounts and special financing options on solar projects in 2020. The goal of this group buy is to add half a megawatt of solar to Wisconsin’s energy mix.

This group buy applies to residential, farm and small businesses in western Dane County from the Town of Middleton to Blue Mounds and Mazomanie, including all neighboring communities in between.

#ShopMainStreetWI
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is beginning to add Connect Communities to their new online retail database (Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce is a member of Connect Communities) They are entering any retail businesses that offer online sales that can be delivered within the state beyond gift cards or can be picked up curbside. Right now they are focusing on marketing this tool as a “shop local statewide even if what you need isn’t offered in your home community”. In addition, businesses need to be located in our district and they need to have some kind of online presence. If you are a member of the Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce and would like to be included on their website, please fill out the very short form below
WMC:
Facing Cyber Crime
Crimes against businesses are nothing new, but cyber attacks have now become a major threat during this time of disruption and businesses are increasingly vulnerable to motivated criminals. How do you keep your business safe?
 
Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Bank of America invite you to hear from Lynn Martin, SVP Global Information Security Officer at Bank of America where she will discuss the most recent cyber trends along with actionable approaches you can take to protect your business.
BOXES NEEDED
St. Martin's Lutheran Church in Cross Plains is in need of 50 medium sized boxes for an outreach program for our community (to be launched July 1 st ).
The Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with St. Martin's in part by reaching out to our local businesses to see if they are able to donate sturdy medium sized boxes. If you would like to donate boxes or if you have any questions please email Terra Morris at CPACC
