ABOUT THE RAMSEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The Ramsey Chamber of Commerce is a group of business professionals who have common bonds embedded in Ramsey. Our membership ranges from small home based businesses to large corporations as well as everything in between. As we bring business together through networking events, educational seminars or community based activities we continue to focus on our mission of Connecting Commerce and Community. By engaging in community based activities that give back to Ramsey, our businesses flourish. Together we are better as a whole then as independent entities.
Owning and/or running a business is often lonely and comes with an overwhelming set of responsibilities. By utilizing our network, engaging in activities and participating in events, business professionals have access to like minded individuals who share the same set of challenges.
In an effort to improve Ramsey Chamber of Commerce membership, engagement and community outreach we partnered with the Ramsey High School Design Thinking program this past spring. This class of honor students who have studied solution based critical thinking strategies went out into our community to meet with businesses and residents in efforts to help us with our mission. Their findings highlighted that most business owners don’t understand our benefits and that residents don’t understand what we do. So here we are hoping to improve our communications!
