Welcome to the Brunswick Economic Development Commission!
Don't miss out! Exciting business events are coming to Brunswick!
(BEDC Events BOLD)
BIZ 101 - Social Media: Tuesday, May 21 6:30 pm at the Legion Hall
Facebook, Twitter, Linked in - Another social network you ask? Why?
What do 90% of your customers do when they search for a product or service online? That's right - they "google" it. Google+ is a big Plus for your business when people are searching for your product or service. Without Google+ your business may be missed when your customers are searching for services on Google.
Come to BIZ 101: Google + and get your business up and running with this important tool. Bring your laptop - you will leave the class with a new or improved Google+ page for your business.
Free for Main St. / GBACC Members | $10.00 Non-members

What is the picnic and why you should be there! Tables are still available.

The 2013 Brunswick Business and Community Directory:
The Brunswick 2013 Business & Community Directory published by the Greater Brunswick Area Chamber of Commerce (GBACC) and the Brunswick Economic Development Commission (EDC), is available at local stores, Brunswick City Hall, Brunswick Library, and Lovettsville City Hall. This is a great guide to businesses and local organizations. New this year - Brunswick area maps "east" and "west", new listing format and a new searchable online version debuting soon!
The Brunswick Branding Project:
The City of Brunswick has tasked the Brunswick Economic Development Commission to take charge of Brunswick's "Brand". This community wide project invites everyone to take part in the development of an identity for the City of Brunswick. Hundreds of volunteer hours, citizens input and pages of data later; the Brunswick Economic Development Commission is pleased to share the working group's final reccomendation for the new Brunswick Brand, Designed by Jean Peterson Design of Frederick, MD. This logo was presented for vote by Mayor and Council on September 11, 2012 at 7:00PM and approved.
