LADCO's Industry Appreciation Breakfast
Sponsored by Coulee Bank
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015
Registration & Breakfast: 7:00 a.m.
Program: 7:30 a.m.
Radisson Hotel Ballroom
We are pleased to welcome Jason Tyszko, Sr. Director of Education & Workforce Policy from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation as keynote speaker. Like many states, Wisconsin faces a shortage of skilled manufacturing workers because many job candidiates lack the necessary competencies and industry-recognized credentials desired by employers. To help address this skills shortage, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will share their workforce reform approach aimed at managing the talent pipeline and bridging the skills gap. Learn how local employers can impact the skills gap by applying lessons learned from supply chain management. Education and workforce providers, students and workers, and policymakers will all benefit from the partnerships, transparency, mobility and improved outcomes this new approach has shown to produce.
The program will also feature the presentation of the Diamond Recognition Award to the manufacturing firm making major strides in such areas as investment and expansion, export growth, job creation, and product innovation. To support the spirit of partnership, the Triangle of Achievement Award will be conferred upon organizations and/or companies which teamed up to bring a certain project into fruition or collaborated to resolve issues central to the area’s economic development. Additionally, the 19th year winners of the LADCO/ CenturyLink Coulee Region Entrepreneurial Initiative’s Business Plan Competition will receive awards for drafting impressive blueprints for the companies of the future.
Cost for registration is $40 per person. Please RSVP no later than July 10th.
