Research Assessing How Community Leaders Perceive BACC and Identify Key Issues Facing Community

Written by Dave Wegge

The Bay Area Community Council (BACC) is currently conducting research to assess how community leaders perceive the BACC and to identify key issues facing the greater Green Bay area. 

Community leaders participating in several BACC discussion groups identify two major challenges facing the future of our community: 1) workforce development and 2) the growing diversity of our population.  The BACC also conducted a survey of community leaders in business, nonprofits, government, and education. Among other things, the survey asked leaders how much of a factor a series of challenges will be in shaping the future of the greater Green Bay area and how well prepared we are in meeting these challenges.   The insights from the discussion groups and the survey demonstrate consensus on these two challenges.
