Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce is a private, nonprofit (501(c)(6)) business association that promotes the prosperity of the business community in the east metro region. Ryan began his involvement with the Chamber in January 2019 as a way to further be involved in not only his community but with other local businesses as well.
The Gresham Referral Organization (GRO) is a positive group of professionals who believe that referrals are the best way to grow their businesses. They believe that referrals are a result of relationships with people they know, like, and trust. With that in mind, they gather weekly to build relationships, learn about each other’s business, and actively seek out opportunities to pass quality referrals to their fellow members. Ryan has been involved with this group since 2004 and is currently the acting president.
