Welcome to Area 19's Business Resource Network (BRN) - serving Geauga, Ashtabula and Portage Counties. The main goal of the Business Resource Network - or BRN - is to help our regional businesspeople avoid service silos and cut through bureaucracies to learn about and get the services they need quickly, efficiently and with the greatest collaborative impact. The BRN connects workforce development, economic development and education in a collaborative, seamless and customer-focused partnership structure to deliver more effective and efficient business services.
The BRN seeks to expand our regional workforce system by providing better results for job seekers and employers, greater efficiency in the delivery of quality services, and cultivating stronger cooperation across programs and funding streams.
The Area 19 BRN welcomes you and encourages you to contact us - potential partners or local employers looking for a one-stop consultation.
