Community Connections: Sue Basiago

Welcome again to Community Connections where each week we like to highlight a member of our Chamber! This week, as a sponsor of today’s Member Meeting discussing leadership, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the leader of Midland Title, Sue Basiago. Sue acquired Midland Title in 2008 and has grown the company ever since. Midland Title just opened their 3rd location in Grand Rapids, Minnesota!

Sue loves the changing of the seasons that Minnesota has to offer. In addition to a wonderful natural environment, she also appreciates that most Minnesotans display a high level of intelligence, a trait worth bragging about! One of Sue’s great strengths is her commitment to giving back to local communities. Part of her commitment of civic service, the employees at Midland Title are given the opportunity each year to contribute financially to a non-profit of their choosing. Through this generous spirit, Midland Title was recently awarded membership to The Minnesota Keystone Program.

The Minnesota Keystone Program recognizes companies that donate at least two percent of their pre-tax earnings to the community. In 1976, 23 Minnesota companies started this program (originally called the 5% Club) to recognize charitable giving and to set an example for other Minnesota companies. The commitment of Keystone participants promises to sustain Minnesota’s spirit of generosity and sense of community. We are proud to have Midland Title as an active chamber member and an example of a positive company doing business in our community!
