Lunch N' Learns are Coming
The Economic Restructuring committee organizes and facilitates bi-weekly one-hour lunch and learn meetings during the months of January through April each year that cover a broad range of business development issues. These sessions are FREE and open to anyone.
We are seeking advice on which topics might be most helpful to area businesspeople.
ERRP has offered the seminars throughout the winter for the past several years. Sessions have historically been held at Eagle River Roasters on West Pine Street/Hwy 70 every other Wednesday starting at 11:30 am. We would like your input on time, location, and topics. Please download our survey to provide your input. Download Lunch N Learn Survey. You can fax your completed survey to (715) 477-0614.
