BLAEDC reworks image


For those in the trenches at Brainerd Lakes Area Economic Development Corp. it’s frustrating to hear people wonder just what the nonprofit is doing to bring in jobs. 

A new image, a new message, a new plan, a new website and renewed effort to increase public awareness are all part of BLAEDC’s relaunch this week.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
