Knowledge and Insights Powering Independent Business

Upcoming Events



  What do members say about IBAW programing?

“I almost always come away from an IBAW meeting with useable material that helps me with my business. Many times, a speaker will give me something that applies to ITU AbsorbTech. Other times, it is a conversation over breakfast that gives me value. Because of the intimate setting, it is easy to engage the speakers after the presentations. I have a number of contacts I use often that began at IBAW.”

- Jim Leef, ITU AbsorbTech


IBAW's mission is to provide insightful programming to its members. We do this by selecting knowledgeable speakers with business experience. 


The video to the right is a short selection from our discussion on exporting where we brought in Mr. Tom Bentley, CEO of Bentley World Packaging, Mr. Joe Jurken, Partner of the ABC Group and Mr. Damian Felton for the U.S. Department of Commerce.

    Secretary of Revenue Barca


    There's a new Governor in Wisconsin and with that comes a different direction and a different team leading departments that impact business in Wisconsin. 


    The Department of Revenue (DOR) is now under the leadership of former state representative Peter Barca. Secretary Barca's previous area of representation was the Racine / Kenosha area - one of Wisconsin's fastest growing regions for business growth - he's no stranger to working with manufacturers and other small business.


    With the new leadership at DOR there are no doubt questions and concerns:


    - How will the new leadership at DOR impact your business and personal life?

    - What changes can we expect from DOR?


    Join on April 19th for an informative morning with one of Wisconsin's most important departments that impacts business.
