25th Annual Chippewa Valley Rally
Wednesday, January 30, 2019


This one-day event is jointly sponsored by the Chippewa Falls, Menomonie and Eau Claire Chambers of Commerce.  We’ll be there to bring our region’s important economic, education and infrastructure issues to the attention of state government. You’ll participate in pre-scheduled small group meetings with legislators and their aides, an exclusive luncheon with the Governor (invited), meetings with top state officials, an informal closing reception, and more. Everything is taken care of, including charter bus transportation to and from Madison (or you can travel on your own if you prefer).

Sponsorships are also available. Contact Scott Rogers at the Chamber.

Annual Human Resource Conference - Deadline to Submit Proposals is this Friday!

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 
8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
The Florian Gardens Conference Center 

The Chamber has partnered again with the Chippewa Valley Society of Human Resource Management (CVSHRM) to present the annual Human Resource Conference. We are seeking proposals from individuals who would be willing to volunteer to present a one-hour session on an aspect of human resources. Do you have experience that you would be willing to share? We are looking for topics on a variety of subjects.

Benefits of Speaking
While this is a volunteer opportunity, speakers receive recognition in marketing material and at the conference. All speakers are invited to attend the entire conference as our guest. And best of all, you are able to promote yourself and your business to hundreds of Chamber members. If interested in presenting, please complete this form and return to Jenna Ziegler by December 7, 2018.
