TEMPO Waukesha is an all-volunteer association.  
Throughout our history, our members have given of their time 
and experience to create a thriving atmosphere for our 
membership.  Many great, long-lasting relationships and 
friendships have been formed through working together on 
committees that further our mission.  Active involvement is 
highly encouraged to get the most from your membership.  

The following committees are active and
welcoming to new
members - you determine how much time you have to offer.  
Many committees meet monthly and/or have an array of 
time commitments. 

If you are unable to join a committee, you may also consider contributing to a
when you are able to (often we are in need of printing brochures, staffing registration tables, 
seeking program speakers and more).

Our monthly lunches are the focal point of membership and provide a great atmosphere for networking and building relationships.  In our ever changing environment, we have been able to pivot some of our events to an online format.  The monthly luncheons topics focus on education, personal and professional development, and community engagement. We believe in continuous improvement in not only in the mind, but also body. The new Healthy Body Series is a monthly to bi-monthly series that looks to further support our members with in-person and virtual events focused on health and wellness.

Committee Members: Michelle DuBord, Jan Grimm, Monica Minor, Kelly Skinszelewski, Laura Vodak

Celebrating Women Leaders Event
Jen Moran [email protected] and Jan Grimm [email protected]

This signature event is held annually. The format is to provide well-known keynote speaker/s who 

addresses issues either impacting our region, our gender or overall current event and/or to honor and
recognize Waukesha County Women Leaders. The event is open to both genders and is a public
outreach event. It has served well promoting who we are and attracting new members. The committee
meets monthly to coordinate the event, seek sponsors, design advertising and promote event
regionally. This is an “all members” participation event - all members typically attend and also offer 
insight on sponsors or connections that can assist in developing a dynamic, successful event.

Social Committee

This committee identifies opportunities to meet, outside of monthly luncheons, allowing members to come 
together and connect in a social environment. We currently have an active Book Club and are planning a 
Holiday event, to name a few.
