CREC Meets with Stakeholders of Momentum West in Western Wisconsin

June 22, 2016

Ken Poole, John Marotta, and Joe Jaroscak, joined by Drew Conrad, visited Western Wisconsin to meet with stakeholders in the Momentum West Region.

The trip included interviews with representatives from workforce development, economic development, education, and business sectors in the 10 county region. The regional stakeholders provided insight that will help to inform a workforce attraction and retention strategy.

Momentum West is an organization that supports ten constituent counties in Western Wisconsin (Pierce, Dunn, Eau Claire, Rusk, Clark, Chippewa, Pepin, Barron, and St. Croix) by marketing the region, providing economic development support, and advocating regional initiatives.
