Highlighting workforce development: Bring your interns or apprentices.
26th Annual Chippewa Valley Rally
Tuesday, February 25, Madison
Wisconsin State Capitol and Park Hotel
The Chippewa Valley Rally is a valuable opportunity for business and community leaders from our region to bring important economic issues to lawmakers in Madison. State policies and funding play a major role in Critical issues like workforce, education, transportation and broadband that affect economic prosperity.
A major theme of this year's Rally will be the value of the programs that make internships and apprenticeships possible. If you're an employer who utilizes registered apprenticeships, college internships, or high school youth apprentices, we encourage you to bring one or more of them along to give lawmakers the opportunity to meet students whose futures are being enhanced by these programs.

How it works: When you attend, you'll be part of a team of several dozen area business and community leaders traveling to Madison for small group meetings at legislative offices, a luncheon, informal discussions with lawmakers and staff at the closing reception, and networking with others from the area who are interested in state government policy.
If you bring an apprentice or intern, they'll join you at the small group legislative meetings to give lawmakers a first hand opportunity to ask questions about the benefits of the program and their future plans.
Special training opportunity: We'll have a short training session the week before the Rally for interns, apprentices, or anyone who wants to attend, to cover the Rally issues and what to expect when participating.
