Brainerd Business Council

The purpose of the Chamber’s Brainerd Business Council is for members located in Brainerd to work together to build a healthy and successful business community in Brainerd through:

  • Working with the city on issues important to business
  • Identifying and acting on opportunities that will enhance business
  • Minimize anything that detracts from the ability to operate business in the city

The Brainerd Business Council is chaired by Kristi Westbrock, CTC, and staff liaison is Matt Kilian. The council typically meets on the second Wednesday of the month.

The council was formed in the fall of 2012 and its first major project was a survey of Brainerd businesses, at the same time a similar survey was conducted by the Baxter Business Council for Baxter businesses.

Results of the Brainerd survey can be found here:
