WCMA recognizes the importance of employee training programs for workforce development and retention.
Each year, our Association offers more educational opportunities than ever before, and we invite you to participate!
Here's a look at our 2020 offerings.

NOTE: For the safety of our members and in response to local and national health official recommendations, the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association will be moving all Fall/Winter 2020 educational leadership trainings to an online format. This includes all offerings of Front-Line Leadership Parts A, B, and C, Next Step Leadership, and Advanced Leadership Series.
