The economy is white hot! Unemployment is record-low! What a great excuse to clink cocktails with your AFF colleagues and learn the inside scoop on the Wisconsin economy.

Enjoy hand crafted, artisan cocktails and complimentary appetizers from Great Lakes Distillery as we hear Professor Hanson’s blueprint for growing Wisconsin’s workforce to its full potential.
