The Miller Civic and Commerce Association and On Hand Development Corporation will be collaborating with organizations in east central South Dakota (ECSD) to produce a monthly newsletter. The newsletter will be a full color, “glossy magazine style” publication that will keep area residents informed of local activities, visitor events, city and county news, and economic development information.
The Huron Chamber of Commerce and Greater Huron Development Corporation have been publishing a monthly newsletter in a 2-color tabloid-size format for several years. You may have seen this newspaper insert titled “Team Huron”. They decided to upgrade their newsletter to the full color, glossy format and to invite the surrounding communities to be part of the publication. Counties that will be included are Beadle, Hand, Jerauld, Kingsbury, Sanborn, and Spink.
The new magazine represents the first “regional retail and economic development magazine” launched in South Dakota. It will be the primary tool to develop a regional approach to enhancing visitor spending, retail awareness, and economic development.
Through the new publication, ECSD communities can celebrate local business accomplishments on a regional basis. This will increase the business’s profile and draw attention to job opportunities and economic development success stories that often go unnoticed. Working together, the region will become more visible as a desirable location for expansion and/or business relocation further establishing our area’s reputation as a business friendly environment.
The magazine will be distributed the fourth Sunday of each month in the Huron Daily Plainsman and in weekly papers in the six-county area. It addition, it will now be placed in motel rooms and be available at doctor, dentist, and other professional offices. The Miller C&C is looking at the possibility of having a copy mailed directly to each C&C member.
Area businesses will have the opportunity to advertise and reach a broad audience in ECSD using this publication. Brad McGirr of Creative Printing, the magazine’s printer, will be in the Hand County area over the next couple of weeks to meet with business owners regarding this advertising opportunity. You may also contact him directly at (605) 352-6565.
The Miller Civic & Commerce and On Hand Development Corporation are looking forward to participating in this new magazine. If you have any questions or need additional information please feel free to contact us.
