UWM Urban Planning Alumni Association's
10th Annual Planning and a Pint: Short-Term Rentals: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Milwaukee - January 29

Please join the UWM Urban Planning and Master of Public Administration Alumni Chapters for our 10th Annual Planning and a Pint focused on the current state of short-term rentals in Wisconsin. In the near future, the State of Wisconsin will be host to a number of national events including the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee (July of 2020) and the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan (September of 2020). Additionally, smaller events and festivals across the region draw consumers from all parts of the state yearlong creating a demand that traditional hotels may or may not be able to meet. Moreover, the ability to lodge in historic neighborhoods or fancy homes, coupled with the ease of accessing that possibility via the Internet, has made short-term rentals a very attractive option for consumers versus the traditional hotel.

1.5 CM Credits available


Wisconsin Economic Development Association's
2020 Governor's Conference
Madison - February 5-7

The Governor’s Conference on Economic Development is the biggest WEDA education and networking event of the year, and we look forward to your attendance in Madison, February 5- 7, 2020. This year’s conference will provide an in-depth opportunity for participants to explore one of the fastest growing segments of socially responsible investing in our communities.

Wisconsin foundations, other institutions and socially motivated families possess a significant, largely untapped source of capital for responding to the state’s development opportunities and addressing its challenges. Learn how capital can be prudently invested to create more healthy, inclusive and sustainable communities in urban, rural and tribal areas across the state.

The Governor’s Conference on Economic Development will feature national presenters that are experts on blending community and economic development efforts to advance social outcomes.
