Elmbrook Rotary was treated to a thorough briefing about the structure and activities of WI's Department of Natural Resources on Friday, February 21, by Joseph Liebau, Jr.
Joe Liebau has worked with the WI DNR for many years and has served in multiple positions during his career. He was named southeast secretary's director in September 2016. Before coming to the DNR, Joe worked for WasteCap Resource Solutions for eight years. Previous to that Joe worked for Brown County in their Hazardous Waste Department.
DNR's secretary's directors serve as the department's eyes, ears, and voice throughout the state, ensuring prompt attention to local issues and improved responsiveness to opportunities. The secretary's five directors act with the full authority of DNR  Secretary Preston D. Cole to build relationships, resolve challenges for DNR customers, and integrate citizen feedback to improve service. The secretary's directors have offices in northern, northeastern, west central, south central, and southeastern Wisconsin.
This presentation is just one of many excellent learning opportunities provided by Elmbrook Rotary every Friday morning (7:00 a.m.) at the Western Racket Club in Elm Grove. Join us some Friday for breakfast and, at the same time, increase your knowledge about the community and about the worldwide work of Rotary.
