    Northeast Iowa – Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) will be presenting the workshop “Build a Better Brand” on Wednesday, November 9, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The workshop will be held at the Waterloo Center for the Arts, 225 Commercial Street, Waterloo, Iowa.

    This workshop will provide non-profits and small businesses with the understanding and tools to upgrade the look of their organization, even on a limited budget. The presenters will share how effective branding can make all the difference when it comes to getting your organization recognized. They will also be offering a Brand Make-Over to one lucky organization to be used as a case study during the workshop. Brand Make-Over proposals must be 250 words or less and be submitted with registration form by September 30.
