The Branch applies fresh ideas to members’ challenges By Brian Otten, Marketing Manager

E

very fall and spring I speak to hundreds of local college students about The Branch. I ask these students to consider participating in a program that will beef up both the job experience and reference portions of their resume. I point out the valuable contacts they’ll make at the c-suite level and how these connections can yield a great job following (and sometimes before) their graduation. When I speak to students in their classrooms in Wausau and Stevens Point, I stress the value of access, both the access the students will have to the businesses they serve as ‘student consultants’ and the access the business craves for local talent and fresh ideas. I’m writing today to invite you, the Chamber’s members, to also tap into this great ‘access’ to students and to consider sponsoring a project in one of The Branch’s upcoming sessions. A number of our members have already sponsored challenges in The Branch since the program launched in the summer of 2016. Church Mutual Insurance Company, River Valley Bank, Ansay & Associates, North Central Health Care, Northcentral Technical College, M3 Insurance and AROW Global have all brought real world

challenges into the program and then worked with teams of students to generate solutions. AROW Global’s challenge in the spring of 2017 was a simple one, “How does our business grow its manufacturing facility?” Although this challenge (and the other challenges presented to student teams in The Branch) was worded very succinctly and intentionally open-ended, the experience for both business and student was a rewarding one. “We gave the students in The Branch the unusual opportunity to help us make a decision usually reserved for a board of directors or senior management.” said retired human resources director Mike Rayome. The benefits of the students’ work on this project, and the access both students and business had to each other, are still being realized at AROW Global as the business continues to grow. If your organization has a real-world challenge which would beneft from the new perspectives and innovative solutions offered by students in the program, we’d welcome you to participate. Organizations that are also interested in fostering the educational growth of the region’s college students, while also establishing contacts with these student, will find great value in the program. If you would like to sponsor a challenge in The Branch’s fall 2019 or spring 2020 session please visit TheBranchWI.org or contact me at 715-848-5947.

Chamber News

Chamber to publish hyper-local calendar again in 2020 The Greater Wausau Chamber of Commerce will again print a calendar featuring local photography, events, individuals, businesses and organizations. The Chamber first produced a hyperlocal calendar in 2019 with twelve Chamber members sponsoring a month each. Local organizations also purchased enhanced date listings in the calendar to promote community events. “Our calendar gives local photographers a unique opportunity

to feature their best shots and it gives our members a great vehicle to promote their business or specific events.” said Brian Otten, marketing manager at the Chamber. The 2020 edition of the calendar will be distributed in the November 2019 Chamber Pak to 1,600 members. The calendar will also be given to the hundreds of attendees at the Women’s Leadership Conference in January 2020. Additional copies of the calendar

will be available for sale for $5 at the Chamber office beginning in November 2019. Seven months are still available to sponsors for $600. This includes twenty copies of the calendar for customers or staff and a coupon position on the back cover. Individual dates to promote specific events are available for $50. Visit WausauChamber.com or contact Brian Otten at 715-848-5947 for more information.

Limited space available in new leadership program The Greater Wausau Chamber of Commerce will offer a new leadership program this fall. Transformational Leadership will be led by program designer and facilitator Bridget Wenman, President of Perspectives Training and Consulting LLC. The program will include nine sessions totaling more than 70 hours of interactive learning and opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. The program will build an arsenal of personal growth strategies for participants, equipping them with the ability to create and inspire change in participants, their organizations and the community. Individuals at any level of leadership will benefit from a better understanding of their personal leadership style and the impact they have on those around them. Attendees will also grow through a renewed understanding of

the region’s history, its founders and the impact each participant can have on the generations which will follow. Wenman, a Wausau native, has more than 20 years of experience coaching executives and their teams, using a wide variety of solutions to help them define their culture, refine their workforce and increase productivity. Wenman has a degree in organizational communication from UW-Oshkosh and was the 2017 ATHENA Leadership Award recipient. “I have been impressed with the quality of leadership programs that the Chamber has brought to our region and I am excited to help them continue in that tradition by implementing a program that not only challenges the participant, but impacts their organizations and the community.” said Wenman. The Chamber’s former Leadership Excellence program had been led by Ray

Mickevicius since 2004. Mickevicius has retired, graduating nearly 500 individuals from the program. “Intercity State Bank has utilized Bridget to assist us with team building dynamics, individual staff skill assessments and as my personal executive coach with many positive outcomes.” said Randy Balk, President/CEO of Intercity State Bank. Registration for the 2019-2020 Transformational Leadership program is open with a limited number of positions still available in the class. The first in the series of monthly sessions will be held on Sept. 6, 2019.

Supporters and Volunteers!

Greetings! Every child deserves to start the school year off with the supplies needed to learn. For the upcoming school year, Marathon County has over 6,500 students in 4K through 8th grade that are *eligible to receive a new, FREE, backpack filled with basic school supplies through the Workplace Volunteer Council’s Fill A Backpack Fill A Need (FABFAN) project. To be *eligible to participate in FABFAN, students must be entering 4K through 8th grade and qualify for free or reduced lunch at school.

Last year, in additional to our annual backpack distribution day, the Workplace Volunteer Council was able to help more children in Marathon County by: − Providing the D. C. Everest School District $20,000 worth of school supplies that they distributed to their eligible children directly through their schools. − Working with two school districts (located greater than 70 miles round-trip to Wausau) to pick up backpacks and supplies for their eligible children. Families were able to go directly to their child’s school to get the much-needed items. Being able to remove the distance factor was key to increasing participation for children located in these school districts. And now it is time for our “ask” – we need your help for this year’s FABFAN project to be successful! The Workplace Volunteer Council is asking for your monetary support so we can take advantage of bulk pricing on the massive quantities of backpacks and school supplies that we need for the upcoming FABFAN event. Supplies need to be purchased now to arrive in time for the 2019 distribution event on August 17, so this request is time sensitive.

The WVC has three sponsorship levels available. Each level provides an opportunity for you or your business to be recognized on all materials that are produced. If you choose to be a Gold level sponsor, your logo will also be included on all materials.  Silver Sponsor $1,000 - $1,999 donation

 Bronze Sponsor $500 - $999 donation

Please contact the WVC via email (workplacevolunteercouncilmc@gmail.com) for additional information on how to become a sponsor. Please note that sponsorship dollars and Gold level logos must be received by August 1 to be included in our materials. As always, any donated amount is appreciated. The FABFAN event is only possible because of generous individuals and businesses. Your donation today will make a big difference in the lives of children in need in Marathon County. The Workplace Volunteer Council has distributed over 62,000 new backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need in Marathon County through FABFAN since 1998 and our work is not done.

“We gave the students in The Branch the unusual opportunity to help us make a decision usually reserved for a board of directors or senior management.
