BN Advantage

Collaboration is the hallmark of the business, government, civic and educational sectors in the Bloomington-Normal Metro Region.  Our primary area of cooperation and collaboration is economic development and competitiveness.  Business, economic development, civic and educational leaders have joined to create BN Advantage, a regional economic development strategy, focused on diversifying and strengthening the region’s economy.

BN Advantage is being led by six organizations – each of which have a vested stake in ensuring that Bloomington-Normal’s economy remains robust, resilient and competitive. These organizations recognize that successful communities work vigorously to shape their own economic destinies:

  • Connect Transit
  • Chamber of Commerce
  • Economic Development Council
  • CIRA
  • Bloomington-Normal Area Convention and Visitors Bureau
  • McLean County Regional Planning Commission
