JANUARY CHAMBER ACTIVITIES
Leadership Menomonie
The Leadership Menomonie group learned all about the educational opportunities right here in our community on January 16. Their day started out at Chippewa Valley Technical College, where Dan Lytle gave a presentation on generational differences in the workplace. The next educational stop was at University Wisconsin - Stout where Doug Mel gave them history of the college as well as opportunities and statistics. It was a very cold walking tour but very informative of the University Wisconsin - Stout campus.

The afternoon started at Menomonie High School where the group was able to meet the new Principal, Casey Drake. It was finals testing but Casey gave a very informative tour showcasing the educational programming offered at Menomonie High School. The group returned to Chippewa Valley Technical College to hear from Margo Keyes with information on the referendum that will be on the April ballot.

The group ended their time together at Brewery Nonic where they learned about the business, what the business underwent to get up and running and the history of the building. They also had time to learn more about each other and networked.
Thank you Sponsors:
Business After Hours
Thank you Andersen Corporation for sponsoring the January 20th Business After Hours! The tour, snacks and raffle prizes were generous and appreciated. Greg shared information about the company but also focused on the tour that school kids attend where they start at a sand pit and follow the sand to Cardinal Glass to be formed to glass and then to Andersen Corporation where it becomes a consumable product. All of this is done right here in Menomonie.

Thank you to the Ambassadors that were able to attend and provide assistance to this successful event. Thank you to all those that were able to attend that learned more about the company, the community and each other.

If you couldn't make this event, we hope to see you at the next Business After Hours on April 20.
