Tourism organizations partner to promote lakes area


Visit Brainerd is committed to promoting tourism to Brainerd and Baxter, Minnesota, while the Nisswa Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the promotion of its own unique community.

Past discussions have settled on the decision that blending marketing together would water down each community’s message, therefore lessening its effect. However, both communities agree that they can serve the greater Brainerd Lakes Area better through partnership and have done so on several occasions.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
