Get Real and Get a Plan (It’s Not the 20th Century Any Longer)

We will look at the characteristics of the millennial generation and the challenges they face as they enter the American workforce in large numbers and become the dominant force in our workforce by 2030.


Jim Golembeski is Executive Director of the Bay Area Workforce Development Board, responsible for the administration of federal job training grants in an 11-county area of northeastern Wisconsin. He has been working in the employment and training field since 1990, before which he worked as a Catholic priest.

Jim holds Masters Degrees in Theology (St. Paul Seminary 1981) and Public Administration (UW-Oshkosh 1997). He is a folk guitarist, biblical historian, bird watcher, one of the dozen or so stamp collectors left in the country, and an inveterate Dr. Who fan, who never dreamed that he would marry anyone so normal.

He is most proud of the “Governor’s Cares About Kids Award” he received in 1998 from the Wisconsin Public Defenders Association and the “Community Quarterback Award” from the Green Bay Packers in 2004 for his work with victims of domestic violence.

Jim is also proud that his board was a co-sponsor of the 2004 Northeast Wisconsin Economic Opportunity Study that led to the creation of the NEW North regional economic development organization. He was part of the team that initiated the Northwoods Economic Summit series that ran from 2005 - 2011. He played a part in the creation of the NEW Manufacturing Alliance in 2007 and the North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance in 2011.

Jim is active in offender reentry efforts and a popular speaker at graduation ceremonies in the state prisons.
