What is the Community of Minnesota Resorts All About?

Our Mission

The Community of Minnesota Resorts (CMR) exists to help family-owned and operated resorts in Minnesota to continue as a viable segment of the Minnesota tourism industry.

Our Motto

The Community of Minnesota Resorts’ motto is “Resorters Helping Resorters.” We believe that none of us alone is as smart as all of us together.

Our focus is on assisting members in marketing and education and assure a voice at the MN state capitol. Every year we offer scholarships to member’s children or grandchildren, give an annual “Resorter of the Year Award,” and offer vendors an opportunity to connect with resorts through our Associate Member Program. Learn more about these focuses by checking out our website.

Our Stucture:

Our board of directors consists of 12 – 20 volunteer resort members on three-year terms, who work on one of four committees: education, marketing, legislative and membership.

Retired Resorter Membership:

We strongly encourage our retiring resort members to continue the connection with our group. For a small fee, you will still receive magazines, Groups.io (previously Yahoo Chatline) and our members-only Facebook group access and be most welcome at all CMR events (conferences, workshops, classes, Day on the Hill, resort tours, etc.) Don’t be surprised if we invite you to share your wisdom and resort experience with us via articles, resort panels and social resorter gatherings.

Associate/Vendor Membership:

Special discounts are offered to CMR members (i.e. low rates on credit card processing, special wholesale pricing on log furniture, 10% off reservation software, 5% off lawn equipment, etc.) Easily find contact information to our resort-friendly business associates.
