Join Thelma Sias in Celebration of Riverworks!
Hard to believe it’s been two years since we last got together to share our Riverworks’ stories, but here we are again, ready to gather and report to our many partners, and stakeholders. The Riverworks Development Corporation, (RDC), accomplished much since the last time we all got together and will be reporting on our recent past and near future at our Biennial Breakfast meeting on April 16th, 2015.
Executive Director Darryl Johnson, our board of directors and staff welcomes Ms. Thelma Sias, Vice President-Local Affairs for We Energies, as our keynote guest. Ms. Sias will help us celebrate and share her thoughts regarding community achievements.
RDC has spent over 20 years achieving success through community and economic development initiatives in Milwaukee, primarily in the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods. Recent efforts include the investment in the Holton Street corridor, the expansion of the Financial Opportunities Center, the rapid growth of our Riverworks Cleans workforce, and continuing collaborations with the Greater Milwaukee Committee, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, LISC, the City of Milwaukee, and our Riverworks Business Improvement Districts.
This year we will be celebrating at the newly remodeled Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront Hotel on North Port Washington Road. A brief networking session will be followed by a hot breakfast and enjoyable program. Seating will be limited, so please register early.
