Please welcome Carmelo!

Carmelo Dávila is the newest WHC staff member! He and his family have moved to Madison from Kenosha, where he worked for UW-Extension.

Carmelo hit the ground running and is busy booking ShopTalk events all over the state. In fact, he has coined a tagline for the program as he spreads the word: "ShopTalk is free to host and free to attend. Easy to book and easy to publicize!"

Feel free to contact Carmelo with any Working Lives Project or ShopTalk questions.

This is a really unique opportunity, thanks to special funding in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize. You can find these Pulitzer ShopTalks here.
