is a series of three breakfast sessions throughout the region focused on young professionals, talent, and attraction in Northwest Wisconsin.The 2017 sessions will build upon the issues, priorities, and solutions identified in our 2016 RIsE
The loss of young people is an issue that many of our rural communities are facing throughout the region. Many strategies are being developed and implemented to attract and retain young people throughout the state and across the country. Our 2017 RIsE
Sessions will provide attendees with information focused on gaining and retaining young people in rural communities. In addition, RIsE
will engage a panel of local young professionals offering insight as to why they choose to live and work in Northwest Wisconsin. The session will close with a facilitated discussion among participants. Join us for a hot, buffet-style breakfast at the upcoming session that works best for you.
