The Future Wisconsin Project – Rural Wisconsin Report Tour

By Portage County Business Council

As part of WMC Foundation’s Future Wisconsin Project, The Rural Wisconsin Report Tour, presented by Bank of America, will release the “Rural Wisconsin Report” researched, prepared and presented by Ted Abernathy with Economic Leadership. The report will share national demographic and economic data, identify best practices as it relates to workforce development, broadband, housing and economic opportunity in rural communities both nationally and in Wisconsin. The report will provide specific recommendations to strengthen rural Wisconsin, as well as foster urban and rural connectivity throughout the state.

In addition, WMC’s Executive Vice President of Government Affairs Scott Manley will review the current legislative session and preview the 2020 election

There is no cost to attend the town hall, although RSVPs are required.

About the Project

The Future Wisconsin Project, a program of WMC Foundation, addresses our state’s long-term systemic, economic challenges. With partner representation from business, government, and education, this program seeks to bring all stakeholders of the economy to the table to develop solutions we can all implement. The year-long collaboration culminates with The Future Wisconsin Summit, held at the end of each year.
