Our Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP) is going virtual this fall! ETP is a 9 week course that provides an easy to follow, step by step process that shows participants how to:
  • Answer the question – "Will people buy my product or service?"
  • Appeal to more customers
  • Develop a lender-ready business plan
  • Use time, money, and resources wisely

Through instruction and guest speakers, the ETP program serves those who are considering starting a business, owners of existing businesses struggling to get a handle on all the details, and those with successful companies they want to grow. Three experienced business professionals will be co-teaching this course and using Zoom break out rooms, polls, and interactive group and individual activities to keep the instruction fresh and engaging.

Cost of the course fee is $1000 but participants may be eligible for a $750 WEDC ETP grant scholarship to help offset the program fee. More information on the attached flier or the program webpage .

Although we are the host of the program, it is open to anyone in the state of Wisconsin.

Clintonville Public School District is pleased to announce the selection of Kimberly Bakeberg as the next Principal of Rexford/Longfellow Elementary. Bakeberg was selected from a field of 30 applicants to replace Tom Burkhalter who accepted the position of District Administrator in the Viroqua School District. Ms. Bakeberg served as the Associate Principal at Clintonville High School since July of 2018, as well as Summer School Coordinator for 4K-12 for the Clintonville Public School District. Prior to serving as the High School Associate Principal in Clintonville, she was the Associate Principal at Ashland High School and Summer School Principal for the K-12 program in Ashland. Ms. Bakeberg also taught Spanish at Shawano Community High School for 14 years and was the pre 4K - 2nd grade Summer School Principal in 2016 and 2017 at Hillcrest Primary School. She stated, "I am looking forward to the opportunity to pursue my passion in education, as well as continue to build upon the strong community at Rexford Longfellow." Please give a warm welcome to our new Elementary Principal.
Combatting Illegal Robocalls
Robocalls are a nuisance and Cellcom is committed to doing its part to combat illegal robocalls. Together with the telecom industry, strides are being made in the fight against this illegal activity.
Robocalls are phone calls that are dialed automatically, often using a computer. Everyone has received a robocall at some point in their lives. Some are useful including those about flight delays, school closures or appointment reminders. Other legal robocalls may come from debt collectors, some telemarketers and political parties. Robocalls that ignore federal and state laws governing the use of auto dialers and prerecorded messages to call consumers are considered illegal. These calls can range from unlawful solicitations for products or services to fraudulent and criminal activity.
Cellcom continues to take steps to protect our customers, including blocking invalid numbers and participating in industry traceback efforts to identify the source of illegal robocalls, which allows law enforcement agencies to take action as appropriate. The company continues to implement STIR/SHAKEN call authentication on its network, as well. This technology diminishes the ability of robocallers to illegally spoof caller ID and improves a carrier’s ability to provide helpful information to consumers, ultimately restoring trust in caller ID.
Consumers can take action to help themselves, as well. Activate existing blocking options on your device. Features such as Samsung Smart Call, Google Call Screen and iOS Silence Unknown Callers may help you screen calls before you pick up the phone. There are also third-party apps available for combatting robocalls. Truecaller and Hiya are highly rated applications, both with free versions for iOS and Android.
There is no single answer to robocall mitigation and consumers should remain vigilant and not interact with or provide personal information to unknown or unsolicited callers. Learn more at Cellcom.com/security. 
We are now accepting vendor applications for this event. Applications are available at the Chamber office or on our Fall Frenzy event Facebook page.
