About The Chamber

The Ridgway Area Chamber of Commerce is organized to achieve the objectives of promoting business and community growth and development in the Town of Ridgway and the surrounding area. 

We are in the process of updating information on chamber benefits and how to get involved in the chamber. We will be sending out announcements soon, plus you can come back here in May to find more information. Thanks for your patience. Great opportunities are on the horizon!

2017 Marketing Plan Overview

The marketing program is led and executed by the Chamber Director and Board of Directors with continual input from local businesses and stakeholders. Many of the budgeted allocations are based on industry best practices, and we look forward to achieving efficiencies through regional partnerships and collaborations. We are planning for 2017 to be a year in which we will lay the foundational elements of a high-performing Chamber. This includes an updated and dynamic Visitors Center, redesigned and upgraded website, and an online and print advertising program that achieves year-round economic impact for our local businesses. We look forward to the Town’s partnership in the execution of these priorities. 

It is important to note the Chamber will incorporate several of the Town of Ridgway’s important programs into the various elements of this plan, including the summer concert series and RAMP UP project. Additionally, we will look forward to collaboration on Town initiatives including the Creative District (where the Chamber has a dedicated liaison), Space to Create and Main Street initiatives (where we are actively partnering on One Ridgway).
