Legislative Day, February 13, 2018

The economic development corporations (EDCs) and chambers of commerce from St. Croix, Pierce, Polk, and Dunn counties will travel to Madison on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 to promote legislative priorities for the Greater St. Croix Valley.
Attendees from business, industry, local government, and private citizens are invited to participate. The annual event is free to anyone willing to travel to and from Madison for meetings with legislators, aides, committee chairs, cabinet secretaries, and policy advisors. To register, click here.

St. Croix, Pierce, Polk, and Dunn counties comprise the Greater St. Croix Valley. Given the four hour plus distance to Madison, organizers of the legislative day believe it is imperative that their voices be heard on issues tied to economic development, transportation, secondary education, workforce, and tourism-recreation.

Rob Kreibich, executive director of the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce, is the 2018 chair of legislative day. Kreibich served in the Wisconsin Assembly from 1993-2007 and understands the legislative process very well.

A preliminary agenda has the Greater St. Croix Valley group arriving in Madison by 10:30 a.m. for an orientation on the 2018 issues during a box lunch. Appointments with legislators run throughout the afternoon. The event ends around 4:30 p.m. and participants depart for home. Vans have been reserved for the day to offset travel expenses.
