Cheryl Krage named Director of Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce

Cheryl Krage has accepted the position as the new Director for the Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce. Though she originally grew up in Milwaukee and spent some time working in Washington DC, she and her husband decided to settle in this area in order to join a family business. “We’ve been here for close to ten years now, so I’m getting used to the area,” Krage commented, acknowledging the difference between metropolitan and small town areas. “Small town life is definitely different, with everybody knowing each other, but I have come to enjoy it,” she added. “I’ve loved seeing how things evolve in town.”

Krage had worked in a number of non-profit organizations, and that experience led to a job at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center as a representative for the Chamber. “I have been involved in the Chamber in different ways over the last number of years, and when the situation presented itself, I didn’t think that I could pass it by,” Krage reported on her acceptance as director. “It’s a new challenge for me.” Krage further stated, “As the Director of Tourism, I’m working in the capacity of getting the word of Lanesboro out there and bringing them to town. I’ve been researching different marketing techniques since I’ve started. The way people receive their information is changing and we are trying to reflect that in our marketing plan. The plan for 2016 will be a good mix of both print and internet advertising instead of mostly print. I’m also going to be taking on the Event Coordinator responsibilities in the new year.” Though Krage is still getting used to the job, she looks forward to working with the partnerships the Chamber has already established, which includes being part of the Root River Trail Town, the Southern Minnesota Tourism Association, and the Explore Minnesota Program. Technically, her job involves working 30 hours a week, but the many meetings usually add up to much more than that. Krage enjoys the meetings though, reporting “It’s neat to get together with other people to brainstorm and collaborate.”

Krage plans to work hard to support the mission statement of the Chamber. This includes advancing the civic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, cultural, environmental, and recreational interests of the city and its residents, along with working to retain and expand area businesses, and promote Lanesboro as a desirable place to live, work, and visit.
