Programming is targeted at ages 21-40 but everyone is welcome to attend. UW-Green Bay has a Corporate Membership and encourages your participation.

UW-Green Bay employees and students pay the ‘member’ price (instead of the ‘nonmember’ price) when attending Current events. If you try to register online for a Current event, and the ‘nonmember’ price displays (instead of the ‘member’ price), please complete the online enrollment process at the following link. Even though UW-Green Bay is a corporate member, Current’s database detects price based on individual membership, so this step may be necessary for the ‘member’ pricing to display.

Creating a Great Workplace Culture

Regardless of your role, what are people, customers and visitors looking for in you? What is the workplace culture you have created with your team that leads to success? Creating a mission driven culture with compassion and trust turns satisfied customers into loyal customers. Their loyalty means they will give you positive word-of-mouth advertising that can’t be beat.  In addition, if the work we do is tied into a purpose beyond profits our job satisfaction increases substantially.

CURRENT: After 5 Shift Visuals


About Shift Visuals
If you ask their mothers what they do, they’d say they make movies all day. Talk to their wives, and they’d say they giggle about cameras and lenses. It’s really much simpler (and manlier) than that: They get to turn people’s passions into beautiful and powerful works of art.

Shift Visuals is a full-service commercial photography and video production house located in downtown Green Bay. They love working with anyone who has a use for compelling visuals: brand managers, healthcare organizations, non-profits, city planners, manufacturers, etc.

They specialize in creative storytelling and brand building through visual media: video for web, television and internal marketing; and product, architectural, editorial and commercial portrait photography. They believe that the best results happen when you work closely, kindly and tirelessly while always aiming to be a part of something bigger than yourself.

About the Space
Their space has video roots, albeit adult video roots. The store was face-lifted in 2000 and was home to a firm of architects for over a decade. Shift Visuals took over the lease in April 2015. With its abundant natural light and urban-loft feel, it’s the perfect space to dream, create and share a beer. Shift Visuals is located above The Urban Frog in the downtown, On Broadway district.

Thursday, July 9; 5-8 p.m., Open House Format.

CURRENT: Water, Money and Community Lunch n’ Learn presented by Robert B. Atwell


This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

Water, Money and Community

Many people are unaware of the new water quality crisis in our area. Even as the PCB clean-up is reaching completion, we now face a new and different crisis as rising levels of phosphorous are bringing new EPA mandates on point source emitters (municipalities and factories).

Capital expenditure investment to comply with new EPA mandates are estimated to total $1B between  Green Bay and Appleton, ultimately to be borne by those who using municipal water and working in the companies subject to mandate. Sadly, we are unlikely to see any material improvement. The real growth in phosphorus is coming from non-point sources, with agriculture being the largest source. This talk will bring out some key points about the economics of water quality.

Event Overview:
Are you man enough? Current has setup a team to encourage our members to join this effort to support our corporate member, Golden House. What’s the most macho way to take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault? Try walking a mile in high heels. You think that’s funny? We challenge you to give it a try. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. In Green Bay, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes will benefit the Brown County Community Coordinated Response Team (CCR) a partnership formed by Golden House, Family Services, the Sexual Assault Center and other key community organizations with the mission of raising awareness of, and preventing domestic violence and sexual assault. Male walkers can borrow a pair of our man-sized high heels available on a first come, first served basis or you can bring a pair of your own. Our lady walkers are encouraged to enjoy the comfort of their own walking shoes.

Event Overview Red, White & Brew: Beer vs. Wine Tapas PairingIt’s a Battle Royale to settle the dispute that has been brewing (pun intended) for quite some time, does wine or beer pair better with food?

We’ve arranged tapas pairings that will feature four courses of different and distinct types of food, each artistically paired with a wine sample from Captain’s Walk Winery and a beer sample from Badger State Brewing Company.

As each course is served, our wine and beer experts will share insights about the flavors offered by each of their offerings and how they enhance the overall quality of the food pairing experience.

Leave your bias at the door as this is an evening designed for culinary exploration, to push you from your palate comfort zone and to try a spectrum of flavors that will make your mouth burst with eccentricity.
