Banners for Light Poles on Highways 65 & 23 E.

2017-2018 Banner Project – Special Promotion for Chamber Members

The Kanabec Area Chamber Foundation is proceeding with new banners from a new (local) business and would like to ask you if you are interested in purchasing a 15” x 80” banner for your business. We have many more poles to fill now so we’d like as many of our members represented as we can!

As you may know from the past banner project,  MNDot will only allow 2” letters so we will keep the design the same as we had in 2014, BUT we will have this variety of colors instead of dark blue.

These are the colors of the ribbons on the Classic Series, City, and other banners that will be displayed alongside the business banners. The white letters that we’ll use for your business name will have outlines and shadows so that they will pop – even on the lighter banner colors (see banner below).

You decide what color you’d like – they will be up for a year, then you can choose a different color for the next year if you wish. These 2018 banners will be of a different material – more of a fabric so they won’t rip or get brittle. The colors will be so vibrant, the price is so reasonable, we can do this annually.

As a chamber member, your banner will only cost you $150.00. These will be ordered on a first come, first served basis so please let me know if you’re interested – right away! Once we know from you what color you’d like, we will send you an invoice and hold a pole for you. On October 2nd, the banner positions will be available to non-members.

Please contact Karen by email: if you would like to order a banner or if you have any questions.

This is a great opportunity to spruce up the highway, make a bold statement for visitors and to promote your business!

Please don’t miss out!

An important message from the Central MN Workforce Development Board

The Central Minnesota Workforce Development Board is working to connect with as many regional businesses as possible regarding collaboration opportunities and creation of a database to assist educators, service providers, and job search candidates to connect more efficiently with willing businesses. Please see the full explanation below and please share with other regional businesses who would be interested in participating and will fill out this important survey.

Link to Survey

We all have a responsibility to cultivate workers’ future success. Together, we must work to ensure access to opportunities and experiences that introduce aspiring individuals to the broad array of careers found in Central Minnesota.
The benefits are threefold –
     each individual can put their talents to work in a rewarding career,
     local job vacancies can be filled with qualified and eager workers,
     and our local economy thrives and prospers resulting in vibrant, healthy communities.  

Opportunities for businesses to lead and grow a strong workforce are abundant. Many business leaders are willing to provide informational interviews, business tours, job shadowing opportunities, and even short-term workplace training opportunities. However, it is often difficult for educators, service providers, and job candidates to identify businesses that are open to connecting in this meaningful way.  

To address these challenges, the Central Minnesota Workforce Development Board has developed this survey to identify the ways in which your organization might be willing to help. Our Board will incorporate your information into an online database, which will help educators and service providers make these local connections for appropriate candidates. For example, if a teacher wants a class to see what the modern manufacturing work environment really looks like, the database could provide a listing of manufacturers who are willing to visit the classroom or host a workplace tour.  Similarly, if an aspiring worker is considering a career in architecture, the searchable database will show which architectural firms are willing to help an individual explore this field, and help a workforce professional make a connection. (All initial employer contacts will be facilitated by school or service provider staff.) 

 If you have any questions, about this survey services at Central MN Jobs & Training, please feel free to contact:  Leslie Wojtowicz at (763)271-3757 or email:
