Updates from Appleton Meeting – 8/23/2016

After the Green Bay August meeting set a record of 17 attendees, Appleton had a record 22 attendees this month’s meeting. A great month for PNW meeting attendance in Appleton and Green Bay and an abundance of networking opportunities created.

We had six first time attendees:

Carrie Drephal – Appleton Information Technologies, LLC
Anne Wettstein – Human Resources Consulting
Nick Erler – Human Resources Consulting –
Al Wells – Variant Productions
Monica Vomastic – Landmark Staffing Resources
Jeffrey Desing – JJD Investments

Welcome and thank you to those that recommended these individuals attend a PNW meeting.

As discussed, Don Noskowiak (facilitator for Green Bay) and Steve Krueger (facilitator for Appleton) are seeking co-facilitators for when we are not able to make a meeting and to continue to strengthen the group by making sure the group is by you for you.

Our presenter this month was Diane Biersteker, Human Resources Consulting in Green Bay, who also introduced Anne her daughter and Nick her son who are part of the business she started back in 2011. Diane shared the HR needs companies have, and how her company can assist businesses of a variety of sizes in dealing with HR Administration and Consultation (Time and Materials verses fixed monthly fees or contracts), Employee Handbooks, Recruiting (not your typical model), Payroll and Benefits Administration, Worker’s Comp and Risk Management. Diane shared the tremendous growth they have experienced and how they can help all companies/industries with employees.

Please don’t hesitate to refer a business to business professional to our group. Referral attendance is how our group grows and adds networking opportunities for us all.
