Welcome to the River Heights Chamber of Commerce!
As Chairman of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce, let me proudly introduce you to our unique member-driven organization. We serve businesses in South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights, along with many others in the Southeast metro. Our mission is to aggressively promote the interests of the business community through advocacy, partnerships, member benefits and networking.
The River Heights Chamber of Commerce is one of the oldest business organizations in the country. We have a rich history created by a diverse group of business owners, community leaders, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations and employees. Both large and small companies thrive in our friendly, cooperative atmosphere.
If you are looking for someone to do business with, please consider using a Chamber member in our online business directory or check out the South Metro Living Guide. These businesses have deep roots in our local communities. I also invite you to consider joining or becoming an active member of our Chamber. You will have many new opportunities for growth.
Our company, Ultimate Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning has benefited greatly by becoming a member. We have formed many new business relationships and friendships. We attended the annual trip to Washington D.C. with the River Heights Chamber of Commerce where we were nominated and recognized for a small business award from the United States Chamber of Commerce, which put our business on the map at a national level. We could obtain this nomination through the River Heights Chamber’s leadership who advocates and recognizes businesses for their successes.
Speaking of advocacy, the River Heights Chamber of Commerce understands there are many city, state, and federal issues that business owners and non-profit organizations must deal with on a daily basis. The River Heights Chamber is a tremendous resource. We are the only organization that represents private-sector interests by active participation in city council and economic development meetings, policy forums and through building relationships with elected officials.
I encourage you to be proactive in shaping public policy. Abraham Lincoln’s dream was, “…a government of the people, by the people, for the people…” You can view the River Heights Chamber’s adopted legislative priorities for 2017 here.
Thank you for supporting a strong and vibrant business community!
