Whether through our weekly meetings with exceptional speakers who inform us so well about the challenges and opportunities for our region, our committees and their participants who are willing give their time, talent and treasure, or our general ‘can do’ attitude of club  members, we are a special group that will impact Milwaukee’s future. I look forward to working with each of you during this exciting time for our Club," said Nancy.
