2016 ypSummit: Bridging the gap between generations
Presented by: Newaukee
Location: Fond du Lac, Wisconsin Time: 8:00am-4:00pm
We have all heard about the differences between Baby Boomers, Gen X-ers and the (infamous) Millennials. Yes, there are distinctions in the way each generation desires to live, work and play. But we all have something in common – we’ve chosen Wisconsin as our home. Thus, we need to work together to ensure our state stays competitive and attractive for future generations.
The YPSummit offers an opportunity for emerging and established leadership to build a united vision for their communities. This two-day symposium invites municipal, chamber of commerce, economic development and young professional leaders to work as a team on a collaborative action plan for talent attraction, development and retention strategies designed specifically to address each community’s assets and needs.

Team of municipal,chamber of commerce, economic development and young professional leaders are encouraged to spend the day learning together. Day two is an action planning session for community teams to practice the place-based talent strategies through the design of YPWeek Wisconsin 2017.
