JCEDO welcomes new Tourism and Community Development Director

Angelica Potts-Bramlage will join JCEDO and JCTC on June 10

Jasper County Economic Development (JCEDO) has hired Rensselaer native, Angelica Potts-Bramlage for the position of Tourism and Community Development Director.

“Angelica will be an exceptional addition to our team,” said Sara DeYoung, JCEDO and JCTC Executive Director. “Her background in working for local tourism attractions, knowledge of the community, and marketing experience, will truly help JCEDO and Jasper County Tourism Commission advance the goals and objectives identified in the strategic plan.”

Jasper County Tourism Commission is a five-member local government appointed board with representatives from various sectors of the hotel and tourism industry. JCTC was formed to promote the development and growth of the convention, visitor, and tourism industry in Jasper County and has the authority to allocate some of the funds generated by the Jasper County Innkeeper’s Tax.

The JCTC has established the Community Activities Support Program and the Capital Project Support Grant in order to supply funding, at its direction, to Indiana not-for-profit organizations to promote and encourage conventions, visitors, and tourism in Jasper County. In 2023 JCTC implemented the use of a community calendar Yodel Events, which allows any community organization to post events. It also extracts information from social media pages, so volunteers do not need to duplicate their event posts https://events.yodel.today/jaspercounty/community

Also in 2023 JCTC created a new website, discoverjaspercounty.com.

DeYoung said the Tourism Commission has been working to truly define it’s goals and impact in the county. In 2023 JCTC worked with Ball State’s Community Development team to draft a strategic plan.

“This is a perfect time for Angelica to come on board, we have so many opportunities as a Tourism Commission and a community. The strategic plan will be a great guide for her and JCTC partners to make a far-reaching impact on Jasper County.”

Potts-Bramlage studied Mass Communications at Saint Joseph’s College and Huntington University. She has worked in Marketing for Indiana Beach and Fair Oaks Farms. With passion for Jasper County’s potential, she is excited to contribute her hands-on experience to our endeavors. Beyond her professional life, she enjoys visiting state parks and taking walks with her four children and beloved border collie, Jubilee.
