Leadership Menomonie Retreat

Thank you Leadership Menomonie Sponsors!

Platinum Sponsors:

The Leadership Menomonie retreat was held September 28-29 at White's Wildwood Retreat in Chippewa Falls. On Tuesday, the class was able to make numerous connections with other business representatives!  From basic introductions, conversation at dinner, speed networking, and casual time this class has already established some great relations!


The Leadership portion of retreat started with learning more about the Chamber investor tools, committees, events and more!  A few Chamber Investor non-profits spoke to the class about their organizations mission and needs.  The final portion of the retreat was led by Stacy Whaley, Fire Up & Lead LLC as Building BRAVING Trust was the final afternoon session.
