From a Business Member:

Any business interested in building and fostering relationships with local city governments should consider being an active participant in the Ridge League of Cities. Joining as an associate member has given my company great exposure to local municipal leaders and allows me to keep on top of the issues that are impacting all communities. Understanding the issues is the first step in helping to find the right solutions. It is a good partnership and worth the investment. ...- Jerry Miller, Community Relations Manager - Progress Energy
