March 26th we held another meeting of the Southwest Wisconsin Ag Innovation Center Committee. We have a strong group of people here committed to seeing this project come to fruition. At the meeting we formed sub-committees and established both short term and long term goals.
First on the docket was fundraising. We have set an initial goal of raising $5 Million for this project. The first goal is to purchase the land for the Ag Innovation Center which will cost around $1 Million. We broke out the fundraising into phases and the fundraising committee will work on giving tiers.
Other committees include Finance, Promotions and Building & Grounds. Each committee will be meeting before the next meeting on April 24th and report back to the group as a whole. It is fantastic to see our ideas taking shape! Stay tuned!
