About Us

The Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce collaborates with organizations in east central South Dakota to produce a monthly magazine. The full color publication keeps area residents informed of local activities, visitor events, city and county news, and economic development information from the region.

It is the primary tool to develop a regional approach to enhancing visitor spending, retail awareness, and economic development.

Through the publication, east central South Dakota communities celebrate local business accomplishments on a regional basis. This increases the business’s profile and draws attention to job opportunities and economic development success stories that often go unnoticed. Working together, the region is becoming 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 is distributed the first Friday following the last Sunday every month. It is placed in every personal and business mail box inside a 25 mile radius of Brookings. In addition, it is be placed in motel rooms and is available at doctor, dentist, professional offices, and waiting rooms across the region. Over 20,000 copies are distributed every month.
