Sales Advisory Board

Meet the board

The Sales Advisory Board consists of alumni, employers and other friends who serve as ambassadors for the sales and sales management program.

The group provides guidance on curriculum issues, helps develop internship and employment opportunities for students, assists members of the sales team to prepare for competitions, and supports high impact learning opportunities for students, such as the Blugold Sales Challenge and The Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up. The Sales Advisory Board meets annually.

For more information contact Jessica Gardner, assistant director, UW-Eau Claire Center for Sales and Sales Management.
