Here is an opportunity to learn about an important effort to revitalize Wisconsin’s economic future, convened in part by the UW System. This summer, the UW System, Competitive Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Higher Education Business Roundtable and the Wisconsin Way will co-host the 2010 Wisconsin Economic Summit Series — three major summits dedicated to helping Wisconsin forge dynamic strategies for a stronger economic future.

The first of the summits focuses on new strategies for economic development and will be held in Appleton on Tuesday, June 29. This summit will highlight, among other things, the findings and recommendations from a recent study commissioned by Competitive Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Economic Development Association and the Wisconsin Counties Association. The second summit focuses on the critical strategic choices that will have to be made as the new administration and legislature begin their 2011-2013 state budget deliberations and will be held in La Crosse on Thursday, August 26. The third summit will concentrate on building on the results of the first two summits to develop a set of strategic briefing papers and recommendations for the incoming administration and legislature. This summit will be held in Milwaukee on Tuesday, October 5.

Please visit to find out more about this important program and to register today. The series is open to the public, and conveners anticipate residents who care about Wisconsin’s future, including elected officials, business leaders, farmers, educators, economic development specialists, small business owners, taxpayers, homemakers and homeowners, entrepreneurs and policy-makers to attend. In addition, please share this information with your colleagues, friends and other individuals in your community who would like to help change the future of Wisconsin.

Thank you. I hope you will be able to participate in this important initiative.
