    Keynote Speaker:

    Congressman Sean Duffy (R)
    Representing the 7th Congressional District of Wisconsin

    Congressman Duffy will discuss the importance of supporting free enterprise, entrepreneurship and the American workforce in order to sustain a thriving economy.  He will also share how recent federal legislative activities have supported these goals.

    In addition, a US Chamber of Commerce representative will present Congressman Duffy with the 2018 Spirit of Enterprise Award in recognition of his consistent support for pro-growth policies at the federal level.

    Congressman Duffy was born and raised in Hayward, Wisconsin, where he was the tenth of eleven siblings.  He worked his way through law school by performing in lumberjack shows and exhibitions across the state of Wisconsin and around the country.  After graduating from law school, Duffy practiced law in Hayward before becoming the District Attorney of Ashland County in 2002.

    Now in his fourth term representing the 7th Congressional District of Wisconsin, Duffy is a member of the House of Financial Services Committee and serves as Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance.

    Duffy and his wife, Rachel Campos-Duffy, are the proud parents of eight children, and their family lives right here in Wausau, Wisconsin.
