Register to attend 104th RAM Annual Meeting & RAMAE Luncheon

RAM’s 104th Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, November 10th, at Lombardo’s in Randolph.  The Board of Directors meeting begins promptly at 9:00 AM, and all RAM members are welcome to attend.  Immediately following the board meeting, members are encouraged to stay and join us at the annual RAM Awards of Excellence (RAMAE) luncheon at noon, where we will recognize six outstanding local businesses in retail in 2022.

“In this rapidly evolving marketplace with technology further empowering consumers, our Main Street businesses must work ever harder to deliver the unique and high-quality products and service which set them apart,” said RAM President Jon Hurst. “We created the RAMAE’s more than 20 years ago as a way to shine a light on the hidden jewels of the retail industry here in Massachusetts.  It is vital to recognize those innovators that are doing it the right way for their customers, and to also hold them up as beacons for others to follow. Our 2022 winners are leading the way in our industry in these increasingly challenging times,” added Hurst.

Awards will be handed out in the following categories: Advertising and Promotion, Community Service, Retail Innovator of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, Retailer of the Year and Retail Hall of Fame.

All RAM members are invited to attend.  Registration is required, although both meetings are free to attend.
