The history of the Green Bay Packers is as much a story of business creativity as gridiron supremacy. Behind every Packer who became a legend on the field, there was an Andrew Turnbull, Dominic Olejniczak, and Bob Harlan; leaders whose creative dedication toward preserving the franchise was unwavering. “Green Bay Packers: Trials, Triumphs, and Traditions” tells the improbable story of how the smallest franchise in American professional sports stands alone as the only professional sports franchise owned by fans, thus providing the only public record of how a sports team is run. A book signing will follow the program.
