Congratulations on having a reason to celebrate! Whether you are just opening your doors or expanding your operations, it's a very exciting time for your business. We are honored to be a part of your big day.


During the visit, Ambassadors donning plaid vests, along with Chamber staff and members of our Board of Directors, will stop by for congratulations and a welcome to the business community.

If your business/organization is new, we’ll take out the giant scissors and cut the plaid ribbon while presenting a plaque. A plaque will also be presented to new owners, general managers or directors.

A photo or short video will be posted on the Chamber’s social media pages and also sent to the Bemidji Pioneer for publication in the Weekender edition.
