Worthington Heading Up FDL Association Of Commerce’s Forward FDL

Melissa Worthington is just getting started as Vice President at the Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce, but she’s already involved in a massive jobs initiative. Worthington will be in charge of the Forward Fond du Lac division that was just created. Association President and CEO Joe Reitemeier  says it’s about retention and attracting new talent to the workforce and having enough people to replace those who are retiring. Worthington, who worked the last four years as the marketing and communications director at Moraine Park Technical College, says she has a lot of exciting ideas. She says they will begin with branding Forward Fond du Lac. Reitemeier says part of the focus will be on retaining those eligible for retirement a little bit longer, developing talent and recruiting for those jobs that can’t be developed internally. He says people will hear more about Forward Fond du Lac this fall with the real push starting next year.
