Our February School2Skills program took Chippewa Falls Middle School students on tours of the CVTC Manufacturing Education Center, Nordson EDI, and the Chippewa Falls High School Tech Ed department. Students learned about manufacturing opportunities in our area, receiving hands-on experience taking them through the processes that local manufacturers go through to produce various parts and products. Thank you to our School2Skills partners for offering these exclusive learning opportunities to students.

Leadership Chippewa Falls Session

This month, the Leadership Chippewa Falls class focused on Government as their learning topic which provided opportunities for participants to hear from key local government officials to develop a clear understanding of the judicial and governmental processes in our area. Leadership students visited City Hall, County Courthouse and the jail.

Chippewa Falls Harley-Davidson hosted a well-attending Business After Hours with CCFBank and Chippewa Steel Hockey as co-sponsors. We connected with many new faces, visited with familiar faces, and networked with tasty food, and beautiful bikes surrounding us. Thank you to our host and sponsors for reminding us of the importance of community, collaboration, and support Chamber members can offer one another.

Chippewa Valley Rally

Chippewa Valley Rally celebrates 30 years and a record number of participants as the Chamber Alliance once again headed to Madison for a day of meetings with state legislators. A diverse group of business leaders from the Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, and Menomonie Chambers met with legislators to strengthen our area’s relationship with the state government to educate, influence, and thank these individuals on issues of importance to our area! Regional priority topics included critical investments in higher education, economic development and tax reform, workforce development, and infrastructure.
