Business Networking for Milwaukee-Area Catholics
Catholic Professionals Forum of Metropolitan Milwaukee
Building Our Christian Faith • Building Business Relationships
Through monthly breakfast meetings, we connect with other business people, learn about community and government issues, and are strengthened in our relationships with Jesus Christ. We strive to conduct business each day in a manner guided by the Gospel message and by the teachings of the Church.
Catholic Professionals Forum holds monthly breakfast meetings, except for a summer break. Our metro Milwaukee meetings are held 7:30-9 a.m. The December 17, 2020 meeting will be held at our usual location: Westmoor Country Club in Brookfield. Space is limited in order to maintain sufficient distancing. All meetings are tentative due to the changing pandemic situation.
Registrations and payment must be made in advance by noon on the Monday preceding the meeting.
