Town Hall Meetings
We’ve had two great town hall meetings and are looking forward to the remaining two. If you are an EO for one of the associations below, please ensure you’re including the meeting in your communications to try to drive attendance, and share our facebook posts when we tag you in them. Oshkosh only has two participants at this time, one being an EO. Waukesha has 23 which is great, but the more the better! Please contact us if you have any questions.
