December 2018 News

I am excited to welcome our newest member to WIFMA, Stuart Carron, out of Milwaukee County. No doubt, it will be great to see how he and his team are tackling some of the challenges that we are all facing and it will be great to see how we can help him out. Looks like the City of Oshkosh will also be joining us soon. I am very glad to see the continued growth of this association!

I want to remind everyone of our next two upcoming events:

2019 Winter Meeting in Waupaca County – February 15th, 2019

We are looking to bring in two speakers to this meeting. One to talk about using brine on our parking lots and sidewalks and also another speaker to talk to us about funding our projects through prescriptive services as well as using a new technology to increase the efficiency of chillers. This will be followed up by a tour from our host, Ron Hansen, and round table discussion of topics that are affecting us all. More details to come…

2019 Spring Conference in Portage County – May 22 – May 23rd

You will receive a separate e-mail as we get closer to this event. So far on the agenda is a great expo that we are lining up with quality vendors that you can find value in, a tour, and presentations on a variety of topics. Let us know if there is anything of particular interest to you. Thanks again Todd Neuenfeldt for hosting!

As the year draws to a close, I want to let you know that the time has come for membership renewals. Please take the time to send in your 2019 forms. I hope that you have seen the value in this association and the power of like-minded people banding together.

I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Holiday season as I look forward to continued collaboration in 2019! Cheers every one!!!
