Celebrating 100 Years of Business.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Alliance’s 100th Annual Meeting on September 13 at the Waukesha County Expo Center.

More than 800 area CEOs, public officials, educators and businesspeople gathered to celebrate the successes of the Waukesha County business community over the past 100 years. Danceworks, Inc. performed a Dancing through the Decades routine, we congratulated Jim Walden on being the recipient of the 2018 Don Richards Leadership Award and 11 different speakers discussed trends in economic development, workforce development, technology and more.

And we’ve made great progress–these issues are complex and ever-changing, and constantly require new ways of thinking to address them.

The business environment is constantly evolving and the Alliance is committed to evolving with it. We are proud of everything the business community in Waukesha County has achieved over the past 100 years and we’re excited to be at the forefront of business growth and success for the next 100 years.
