Taking the Chippewa Valley's Voice to Madison.
This annual event is organized by the Chippewa Valley Chamber Alliance, representing the Chippewa Falls, Menomonie and Eau Claire Chambers of Commerce. It's a unique opportunity to bring the collective voice of Chippewa Valley business and community leaders like you to Madison all at one time. With workforce issues at the top of the agenda, we'll be there to emphasize the impact on our region of initiatives being undertaken or considered by state government, including education, infrastructure, housing supply & affordability and more.
How it Works
You'll be part of a team of several dozen area business and community leaders traveling to Madison for small group meetings at legislative offices, a luncheon, informal discussions with lawmakers and staff, and networking with others from the area who are interested in state government policy. And don't worry if you've never participated before. Our legislative office meetings will be led by experienced previous participants.
After you register, you'll receive more information and be kept informed of plans as they are finalized. Cancellation policy: If you find later you can't attend, cancel at least 7 days before to receive a full refund.
The Chippewa Valley Alliance Partnership requires all registration be conducted by the Eau Claire Chamber

You'll spend a full day in Madison from late morning through early evening, scheduled to allow you to leave in the morning and be home by late evening. Events will take place at the State Capitol and the Best Western Premier Park Hotel. There will also be online pre-event briefings the week before to acquaint you with the 2023 Rally Issues and the political climate in Madison.
