LEADERSHIP MENOMONIE GRADUATION
Graduation for the 2019-2020 Leadership Menomonie class was scheduled to be held on Thursday, August 27. The celebration was to start at Wilson Creek Inn followed by the formal program being held at The Mabel Tainter. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 safety concerns, graduation was canceled. But we have great news! We have flexible leaders who have been accommodating to a different style of graduation. Please stay tuned for their virtual graduation ceremony to be posted on the Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page and linked on www.menomoniechamber.org within the next week.

Take part in business professional and personal development, learn about incredible area businesses and connect with peers to create lasting relationships. As you can see on the application, the program will be held virtually and a half day. As the year progresses, we will evaluate the virtual program to determine if in-person tours are possible with safety top of mind.

Graduates will have completed nine half or full-day sessions, studying a wide variety of topics including education, business and industry, heritage, arts and tourism, media, government and law, health and human services, agriculture and environment. Class participants will be assigned to small groups as they determine and work collectively on a class project that provides another asset to this great community.

Our organization plays a vital role in making sure the Greater Menomonie Area is a vibrant place to do business. Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce is an advocate for all our members, and Wisconsin Chamber Month gives us the opportunity to recognize the value each of them bring.

To celebrate Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce Month, we will be spotlighting our Chamber staff, a member benefits educational series, Thankful Thursday and more. Get to know who we are and what we do on a deeper level!
Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce – the state chamber – and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to recognize all our efforts at a local, state and national level. Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce Month is all September long and will include four weekly virtual events throughout the month.
