Economic Prosperity Series: Make your voice heard!
The Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS), in partnership with the Marathon County Public Library and the T.B. Scott Free Library, will be conducting six deliberative community forums on how to enhance America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century.
These six forums are designed to gather public input on important questions about health care costs, federal budget priorities, and how we should, as individuals and families, take charge of our financial future. Comments will be shared with federal officials and policymakers through an initiative by the National Issues Forum Institute and Kettering Foundation. Leading the forums will be John Greenwood, WIPPS outreach consultant, and Shawn Igers, a UW-Marathon County student leader.
Two community forums will be offered for each of three topics important to American prosperity and United States citizens. Note: Because each forum will be capped at 18 participants, registration is required. To register, or for more information, contact Connie Nikolai at 715-261-6368 or email email@example.com.
