Region 9 Recently Honored By A National Organization

The Region Nine Development Commission was recently recognized by the National Association of Development Organizations. Nicole Griensewic Mickelson is the executive director of Region Nine says they receive the 2019 Aliceann Wohlbruck Impact Award.

“It was for our Medtech connect plan,” said Griensewic Mickelson. “It looked at all of the medical supply chains throughout south-central Minnesota. We were able to talk to all sorts of business owners to advance this manufacturing field.”

Region Nine representatives say the plan examines how and how well manufacturing and related industries leverage their geographic proximity to the medical manufacturing hub of the Twin Cities and innovations at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
