Name: Navigating the New Economy Roundtable
Date: October 26, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM CDT
Event Description:

Business leaders and community members have an opportunity to learn from state and local experts about how they can better navigate the new economy during roundtables in Hudson, Richland Center and Sheboygan. The series of community conversations is brought to you by and in partnership with UW Colleges and UW-Extension.

“UW Colleges and UW-Extension were the perfect partner for us to choose for these community roundtables because of their statewide reach and resources, combined with their local experts,” said Jeff Mayers, president of “Working with them will help us go beyond the urban areas we typically work in and reach into population centers in more rural areas so we can have a discussion about the options these communities have to better navigate the new economy.”

The interactive sessions will provide insights into the entrepreneurship history and business personality of each community by exploring the area’s industry mix and the key contributors to job creation, as well as share new techniques for developing local resources. UW Colleges and Extension Chancellor Cathy Sandeen will moderate the discussion, and panelists include:

  • John Koskinen, Chief Economist for the Wisconsin Department of Revenue
  • Mark Lange, Executive Director, UW-Extension’s Division for Business & Entrepreneurship
  • A local economic development expert from each community:
    • Eric Biltonen, Community, Natural Resource and Economic Development Educator, UW-Extension (Hudson)
    • Will Cronin, Community Resource Development Educator, UW-Extension (Richland Center)
    • Claire Thompson, Community Resource Development Educator, UW-Extension (Sheboygan)

“Local economies are the key to Wisconsin’s overall economic vitality, so we look forward to working with WisPolitics, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue and UW-Extension experts to hold this series of community conversations,” said Chancellor Cathy Sandeen. “Using new data we’ll be able to talk about the unique business personality of each community so that attendees gain a better understanding of what’s happening below the surface and what needs to be done to drive future economic growth.”
