(Alexandria, MN) Geneva Capital has been selected as the recipient of the 2019 Business & Industrial Appreciation Day award by the Boards of Directors of the Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission and Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Business & Industrial Appreciation Day (BIAD) event has honored a Douglas County company each year since 1984 and is recognized as one of the largest and longest standing annual events of its type in greater Minnesota. Annually, one company from the region is selected as the BIAD recipient based upon the following factors:

  • Impact of the business on the job market.
  • Impact of the business on the local economy.
  • Capital Investment; an indication of commitment by the business to increase community capacity.
  • Community Contributions; evidence of the company’s investment of time, skills and resources to assist in community-oriented projects.

The BIAD luncheon will be taking place Tuesday, October 8th at the Arrowwood Resort & Conference Center. This event will be a celebration of the success, growth, and impact of Geneva Capital not only in our local area, but statewide as well. The luncheon is an opportunity to spotlight the organization with a company video and presentation of formal resolutions from local and state leaders.
