We’ve all been through a lot this year: the pandemic, supply chain issues, and talent shortages, just to name a few. What is awesome is that the Chippewa Valley has continued to prosper because of the hard work ethic of our citizens, our businesses’ ability to innovate, our abundance of entrepreneurship, and those individuals who support the mission of the CEDC.

We close out this year being reminded of how fortunate we are in the Chippewa Valley. This month, the Governor announced that UW-Eau Claire and CVTC were winners in the Innovation Grant Program. Businesses continue to build and expand during the winter, and we are excited for the upcoming adventures that await us in 2022!

May the gift of love, peace, and happiness be yours this Christmas. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thanks for all you do.


The CEDC Board of Directors and Staff

The CEDC office will close at noon on December 23rd for the Christmas holiday, and reopen on December 27th, when we will begin planning for 2022!
