We Celebrate Our Past, Too!

Rick Sense, Envision Board member

Recently, the Greater Green Bay Chamber completed the fifth chapter of its Member Book Club.  This edition focused on the book, The Golden Age of Brown County Enterprise: Their CEOs, Strategies and Teams, written by Phil Hauck.  Phil was gracious enough to lead this three-week read and discussion.  Hauck, the author, former reporter at The Wall Street Journal, Vistage CEO Group facilitator, and current leader of Envision Greater Green Bay board, provided great insight and perspective on the content of his book and on the highly successful corporate generation highlighted in his work.

Participants in the book club included CEOs and senior leadership positions within organizations across Greater Green Bay.  The feedback received from the participants was strong and the book was very well received.  Truly a must read, Hauck’s book is available for purchase here, with all proceeds to charity.

Greater Green Bay Blueprint to Prevent and End Homelessness (2021)

The Greater Green Bay Community Housing Initiative Task Force engaged the Corporation
for Supportive Housing (CSH) to facilitate a planning process to develop a plan to prevent
and end homelessness. The plan is designed to be action oriented, with proposed initial
“small wins” focused on reducing harm, as well as medium to long-term actions and tasks
that would transform systems and potentially change entirely how the city, county and
local providers respond to people experiencing housing instability and homelessness.
Between September 2020 and October 2021, local elected officials, county and city
leadership and staff, philanthropy, law enforcement, local providers, CSH, school staff and
employers, and people with lived experience of homelessness developed and released
The Greater Green Bay Blueprint to Prevent and End Homelessness.

This work was funded by the Basic Needs Giving Partnership, a fund of the Greater
