The Range Association of Municipalities and Schools (RAMS) is a non-profit organization formed over 80 years ago by a group of forward thinking elected officials who were concerned about the impact and influence of the Oliver Mining Company at the State Legislature and the potential negative affect on our communities and schools. RAMS has served as a vigilant steward of the best interests of the Iron Range since 1939 and has represented the Range on a myriad of issues for ¾ of a century.
Any public entity within the Taconite Relief Area as described by MN Statute 273.134 is eligible to become a member of the Association. School districts within the Taconite Relief Area are also eligible for membership. Annual dues are very reasonable. For more information or to set up a personal visit with the Executive Director, please complete the form below. Thank you for your interest in our organization.
