Trade council book aims to draw businesses

September 11, 1997|By Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan | Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan,SUN STAFF

The Anne Arundel Trade Council is launching today a glossy, coffee-table book on the county that organizations plan to use as a marketing tool to attract businesses.

Titled "Still Revolutionary," the $30 book delves into the county's history and includes pictures of communities, schools and businesses as bait for companies interested in the area.

"More and more today, employers are aware of the need to provide for the needs of the employees a need for the quality of life that employees expect," said Bob Burdon, the council's executive director. "They don't just have to be happy with their work, but also have to be happy where they live."

The last time a similar book about the county was published was 1991, said Rosemary Duggins, spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corp. She said her organization plans to purchase some copies to send to businesses who have expressed interest in Anne Arundel.

"A lot of times, companies that are looking at this area are looking for a flavor for what type of companies are here and a feel for what the business neighborhood is," Duggins said. "We've not had [a book like this] for quite some time, so we're looking forward to having this as a tool to educate businesses about Anne Arundel County."
