Due to growth within the organization, Duluth BizPac has decided to make some changes that will continue to build momentum for the organization in 2020 and beyond.
First and foremost, there will be a structural change as well as a new name for the organization. A 501(C) 6 will be created and the name will be the Greater Duluth Business Association. This will allow for businesses that are interested in the mission of the Greater Duluth Business Association to become members of this non-partisan organization.
The mission of the Greater Duluth Business Association is to serve the greater Duluth area business community by creating and supporting a pro-business climate and positively advocating for business issues from a government policy standpoint.
All interested in finding out more about making Duluth a more welcoming place for entrepreneurs, businesses and supporting our local economy are encouraged to contact us. The political action committee now known as Duluth BizPac will operate under the umbrella of the Greater Duluth Business Association.
Rob Stenberg has resigned as President of Duluth BizPac and has accepted the position as part-time Executive Director of the Greater Duluth Business Association and Tracy Lundeen has been elected President of the new organization. Board members of the Greater Duluth Business Association include Lundeen, Beth Wentzlaff, Brad Jenson, Sue Coen and Jim Caesar.
The new organization intends to be in operation by January 1, 2020 and all other changes are effectively immediately.
