Laborers Hire North Dakota Business Development & Governmental Relations Director

LDC Taps Pamela Link to Lead Communications Efforts in ND

(Saint Paul, MN – February 25, 2014) The Laborers District Council of Minnesota and North Dakota has tapped McLean County Commissioner Pamela Link to head up efforts to build membership in North Dakota, effective March 3rd.

Link, a North Dakota native, will be the first person to hold the title of Business Development & Governmental Relations Director for the LDC. The newly created position is intended to provide oversight for the LDC’s political and communications work as it bulks up its presence in the state.

“I feel euphoric about this new position and opportunity,” Link said. “I’m excited to promote the trades and help the Laborers increase their visibility and membership in North Dakota.”

Born and raised on a grain farm in Slope County, the smallest county in the state, Link graduated from North Dakota State University in 1990 with a degree in Mass Communications. She worked as a journalist before getting a Masters in Management and Business from the University of Mary in 2000.

Link brings experience from both the communications and construction worlds to her task. She broke into the corporate communications after earning her advanced degree. Afterwards, Link eventually started her own communications consulting firm.

Link is also familiar with construction trades, having held the position of Executive Director of the North Dakota Construction Council since 2012.

Link will begin work on March 3rd, weeks before the LDC participates in a multi-union campaign to attract workers to high demand labor markets in the booming Dakota economies.

“Pamela is ideally situated to accelerate our growth and improve our governmental relations in North Dakota in this time of expansion,” said Todd Pufahl, LDC President. “She understands the trades, and has the skill set and relationships to get our message out.”
