Chamber has new band fest coordinator and work study intern

The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce has a new Vikingland Band Festival coordinator.

LuWanna Johnson joined the Chamber last September.

She said she's excited about this assignment, as it dovetails with her experience as a conference coordinator for companies such as Medtronic and American Express. Her degree is in training and education from Metro State University.

The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce also has a new work study intern.

Boe Barlage is a student in the computer information systems (CIS) program at Alexandria Technical College.

Barlage feels that working with the Chamber has been an excellent opportunity thus far and has provided him with many on-the-job experiences: "I have been blessed to be given the opportunity to work and learn with such a great group of people and look forward to the journeys ahead of us!"
