We are excited to host the 2024 Midwest State Association Staff Retreat, July 31-Aug 2 in Madison, Wisconsin.

The event will take place at The Madison Concourse Hotel & Governor's Club, located 2 blocks from the WCA office and in the heart of downtown Madison. 


We will kick off the event Wednesday evening with a Wisconsin Welcome reception and dinner at Naples 15, where you'll savor the flavors of Neapolitan cuisine.


Thursday begins with a Rise & Shine Breakfast located in the Madison Concourse meeting room, leading into a day of creativity and collaboration. After a day of sessions, we'll venture into the Madison outdoors for a fun team building experience. Later, relish the evening with Cheers & Beers and savor a delightful dinner at Coopers Tavern, renowned for its wide array of locally crafted brews and an extensive menu.


On Friday, the event will conclude with the time-honored tradition of group breakout sessions, providing you with the opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm, leveraging the insights acquired from earlier sessions.


At the close of the day, you can choose to conclude your visit after lunch or extend your stay to explore more of Madison.


Don't miss this opportunity to connect, learn, and create lasting memories in the heart of Wisconsin!
