Out of concern for our attendees and awardees — and recognizing that local governments and others are far too busy right now to submit nominations — we are postponing this year’s Salute to Local Government, which was originally scheduled for June 22. We fully intend to hold this event later in the year but will wait until later this spring or summer to set a new date. Until then, we are still accepting award nominations and have extended the deadline indefinitely. Award categories recognize outstanding performance by local governments and school districts in the areas of effective problem-solving, innovative use of data or technology, intergovernmental cooperation, and private-public cooperation. In addition, our Norman N. Gill award and Jean B. Tyler Leader of the Future award recognize individual excellence.
We appreciate your understanding and your support of the Wisconsin Policy Forum. Please stay tuned for an announcement of a rescheduled date.
