SIGN UP FOR A FaB MEMBER FORUM

Is your employer a FaB member? Check here. If yes, pull up a chair and sign up for a FaB Member Forum, our members-only affinity groups. 

Each FaB Forum is aligned with one of our seven areas of strategic focus to raise Wisconsin's visibility as an industry leader and better connect our industry ecosystem for elevated growth and innovation. 

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT I'M A FORUM MEMBER?

Forum members share common food and beverage industry roles, responsibilities, experience, and interest to foster a purposeful peer setting. Throughout the year, Forum members are given opportunities to convene with their peers via events and ad-hoc meetings. Forum-inspired events are designed to discuss and raise issues and subjects of importance and share best practices of interest. 

Please note that some Forum activity is by invitation only and will focus specifically on our food and beverage company professionals, while others will include our technical and professional services member professionals.
