UW-RF Hosts Regional Synergy Conference in September
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will host the second annual Synergy Conference 2004 on Sept. 15-16 to bring together business professionals, government officials, development organizations and others to discuss critical issues facing communities in west-central Wisconsin.
Topics to be discussed include ensuring affordable healthcare, building digital infrastructure, and preserving quality of life during rural-to-urban transitions.
"Participants in this yearŐs conference will gain insight from regional and national leaders on all three areas and leave with real-world examples of what people, businesses, organizations and communities are doing when faced with these issues," said Leon Zaborowski, dean of Outreach and Graduate Studies at the UW-River Falls.
Sponsored by the Regional PK-16 Consortium, the conference will be held at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson and will include exhibits from regional vendors and organizations.
A combination of keynote lectures and workshops will be held on Wednesday with follow-up and hands-on activities provided on Thursday morning. A reception on Wednesday afternoon will give participants a "Taste of the Region" as local restaurants and hospitality providers share their regional cuisine favorites. Registration information and exhibit and sponsorship opportunities are now available.
The conference is structured for team participation, and registration discounts are provided to organizations that send three individuals. Individuals will pay $95 for admission, refreshments, lunch and conference materials. Teams of three individuals will pay for two participants. There is also an early-bird discount for all registrations received before Sept. 10.
Sponsorship and exhibitor packages are also available. For more information or to register as a participant, exhibitor or sponsor, visit the Web site at http://wcw-synergy.net or contact the UW-RF Outreach Office at email@example.com or 715-425-3256 or 800-228-5607.
