It's about our region's future.
      Our region is changing economically and demographically, more on that in a moment.

We are large, rapidly growing, and, as I have noted, now understand that development in Appleton benefits Green Bay and development in Green Bay helps Appleton.

Our region owned the 1900s when manufacturing was king. That leads to certain strengths: a strong workforce and a legacy of wealth that sets us apart from the rest of the state in the capacity for entrepreneurial investment.

There is another legacy less positive as we prepare for the future: there were days, now gone, when a lifetime well-paying job was assured in one of the mills and without higher education. So, today in our region, were we a state, the percentage of our adult population with baccalaureate degrees would rank us near rock bottom among the 50 states.
