The Business and Entrepreneurial Support Team of Waseca County (B.E.S.T.) in collaboration with the City of Waseca, Waseca Area Chamber of Commerce, Waseca County, Mayo Clinic Health system-Waseca and Waseca Public Schools have determined that it is critical for the greater Waseca Community to have a common Vision and plan to achieve it for the community. Each of these organizations have their own strategic plans and objectives, but shared vision and values are needed to better unify and coordinate efforts, enable better communication about what the community is and where it is going, and provide a unified voice for where the community needs to invest to get it to its destination.
Jim Boerboom served as Deputy Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture from July 2007 to October 2016. Today, Jim chairs B.E.S.T. of Waseca County and is passionate about Vision 2030.
Sophia Hoiseth was hired by the City of Waseca as a Lead for Minnesota Fellow to leverage the outreach to business owners and community members to further the Waseca 2030 vision to create a vibrant community.
