My name is C.J. Rugh, Senior Manager of Events for the Minnesota Vikings in Eagan, MN. It is with great enthusiasm that I take on the role of incoming 2024 Board Chairman of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors!

I have been an active chamber member and board member for four years. My chamber membership has provided me the opportunity to build connections in the community – both personal and professional.

The River Heights Chamber of Commerce has a rich history of bringing together dynamic and diverse businesses. It is my vision to continue this tradition while also embracing new opportunities and addressing the evolving needs of our members.

In the coming months, I plan to engage with each of you to better understand your unique challenges, aspirations, and expectations from our chamber. Your input is invaluable, and I encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas openly. Together, we can create a chamber that is responsive and proactive in addressing the needs of our members.

One of my immediate goals is to enhance networking opportunities and foster more engagement among our members. By fostering stronger connections and partnerships, we can create a vibrant business community that drives us all toward success. Please mark your calendar for these upcoming events.

·Annual Meeting, Trade Show and Luncheon – Thursday, January 25, 2024
·Annual Chamber Golf Classic – Monday, June 3, 2024
·Annual Awards, Trade Show and Luncheon – Thursday, September 26, 2024

Additionally, I will be working closely with the board to develop programs, workshops, and events that provide tangible benefits to our members and contribute to the overall growth of our business community. If you have ideas, please let me know!

I am confident that, with the collective talents and expertise of our members, we can make the River Heights Chamber of Commerce a hub of innovation, collaboration, and success. I look forward to meeting and working with each of you in the coming months, and encourage you to reach out with your ideas, concerns, and aspirations.
