Visions Northwest to Partner again in 2018 RIsE Breakfast Sessions

Together with the Northwest Workforce Investment Board and Northwest Wisconsin Educators for Regional Development, Visions Northwest will host a series of RIsE (Regional Insights on the Economy) Sessions throughout the region.

Building upon conversations that took place during previous RIsE events, the 2018 RIsE Breakfast Series will focus on Developing Attractive Communities in Northwest Wisconsin. In 2017, RIsE featured a statewide study on gaining and maintaining young people in Wisconsin communities. Findings from the research revealed important qualities of communities that are important for attraction, such as the development of outdoor amenities, the small-town sense of community, and proximity to quality schools, entertainment, and shopping opportunities.

RIsE 2018 will include a comprehensive presentation on Placemaking by Dave Armstrong, Barron County Economic Development Executive Director, followed by a panel discussion showcasing a variety of examples of successful community attraction and development projects.

Join us for a great breakfast, insight on enhancing your community assets, and an engaging discussion at the upcoming session that works best for you:?
