  2. Economic Prosperity Forum: Making Ends Meet
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End time: 08:30pm
    • John Greenwood of the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS) is moderating deliberations on three topics critical to America's 21st century economic prosperity. "Making Ends Meet: How Should We Spread Prosperity & Improve Opportunity?" is the February 11 topic. These deliberations give ordinary citizens a voice much deeper than a poll or survey into what they think about these issues. This citizen input will be used by the Kettering Foundation and the National Issues Forum Institute to inform federal officials and potentially influence public policy. You are welcome to participate in this important process. Up to 18 citizens may participate; contact Connie Nikolai at 715-261-6368 or connie.nikolai@uwc.edu to get involved, and walk-in will also be welcomed.
