Critical Questions & Issues for Business in 2020
How will Business Issues be addressed in this Election year?The recession that many feared was looming in 2019 never showed up. And by many measures—unemployment, wages, and the stock market to name just three—the economy is the strongest it has been in years. But many questions remain at the start of this new decade. Today, we are at a crossroads, economically, politically, and globally. The debates and the decisions confronting the American business community this year have far-reaching consequences. We are not merely asking ourselves, what will the economy look like this year or next. Today, we are asking, what of economy do we want to drive this nation forward?
What challenges across the country beg for our attention?
Please Join Us for a Special Presentation by
- What's our place in the global economy? Will we step up, standstill, or pull back?
- What kind of future do we want for our children, and theirs?
- What is the role of business—and government—in securing that future ... and are we up to the task?
- And many are simply wondering this—what can actually get in a year like 2020?

Upcoming Issues and Discussions for 2020:
Meaningful action this year requires business to engage thoughtfully and vigorously in the intensifying debates over the future of our economy and the role of business in our society. The debates about free enterprise are not merely academic. They are happening across the kitchen tables of hardworking Americans and in diners from Des Moines to Manchester. These debates are playing out on the campaign trail and seeping into the policy arena, with candidates for president calling for:
Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow
County Board Chairman Paul Decker
New Berlin Common Council President Ken Herenda
