President's Message


Fall has arrived and we have one chapter meeting under our belt. Our meeting schedules are firming up nicely and we have a great slate of professional development and keynote speakers planned. 

A reminder that our October chapter meeting will be at Acuity Insurance in Sheboygan on Wednesday, 10/17. It should be a great session with several of the Acuity leaders participating in the keynote address.  If you haven’t already, I encourage you to look into Acuity’s story. They have a great track record of being recognized as a great place to work. Please don’t forget to register and feel free to invite your CEO, HR professionals, or other executives to join you.
