RAMS Annual Meeting & Dinner
RAMS will be hosting their annual meeting on January 10th, 2018. Once again we will be at the Mountain Iron Community Center for an evening of good conversation, greeting of old and new acquaintences, social time and a great dinner. This year the RAMS business portion of the meeting (election of board vacancies, vote on constitutional amendment, finance report) will be conducted prior to the start of the formal meeting and dinner. The business meeting will start at 5:40 pm in the council chambers and should be completed by 6:00 pm. All RAMS member units are eligible to attend and vote on the election of board members and the amendment – but are limited to one vote per political subdivision.
Special guest speaker is Governor Mark Dayton, followed by Senator Tom Bakk and members of the Range delegation. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet and speak with our elected officials prior to the 2018 legislative session.
