FaB CEO Briefings are invitation only. See below for more information.



We’re pleased to bring together the heads of some of Wisconsin’s leading industry trade associations to talk public policy with us. At this invite-only FaB CEO Briefing, brought to you by the Leadership Forum, our panel will offer industry leaders an advocacy viewpoint.

Each association, which serves a sector of the food and beverage industry, forms a public policy agenda and voice to advocate on behalf of their member companies. This is a distinction between a trade association and an industry cluster organization like FaB, with companies representing the breadth of our industry coming together to strengthen our state's ecosystem. Working together with our trade associations can lead to our food and beverage industry having a greater advantage operating in Wisconsin.

On May 2, our panel will represent vegetable/food processors, cheesemakers, craft brewers, and the grocery, restaurant, and bio industries. We’ll learn what they’re working on and where there are similarities in their agendas. We’ll discuss how these agendas will benefit industry growth – your growth. And we’ll see where we might unite to benefit the whole of our industry.
