Workforce group seeks guidance

MRCI Workforce is looking for a few good men and women.

The company, which provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities, is looking for ways to better promote itself in the Twin Cities and needs volunteers to help figure out ways to do that.

Rosemount director Julie Beckman said the company, which is based in Mankato, is rapidly growing in the Twin Cities. It wants to create a marketing committee with the goal of promoting its operations up here. The company has locations in Chaska and Shakopee as well.

The company hopes to recruit a few community members to participate on the committee. Beckman said they are looking for two to four people who have an interest in helping and see value in what the company does.

Involvement on the committee shouldn't be time consuming. Beckman said they meet every other month and will occasionally have events to attend. Volunteers can be as involved as much as they want beyond that.

For more information or to volunteer call Julie Beckman at 651-423-8900.
