The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has signed on as a co-host to the upcoming “Making Regionalism Work – Learning from the Charlotte Success Story” event being offered by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Ronnie Bryant, president and CEO of the Charlotte USA Regional Partnership, will speak about the importance and significance of regionalism and economic development. He’ll share the success story of transforming a small southern town into one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country.
UW Oshkosh joins many other community organizations, including other educational institutions, cities, economic development agencies and nonprofit organizations, as a co-host of the event.
The event will be held Tuesday, July 16 at The Marq, 3177 French Rd, DePere. Registration begins at 7:15 a.m., the program will be held from 8 until 9 a.m. with a question and answer session following the presentation. The cost is $20 per person.
The goal of the event, according to the New North board of directors and executive committee, is to “truly focus on increasing the amount of collaboration in the region — not only with New North but with each other — separate communities, separate chambers/EODs working together toward one common goal.”
