Chamber Ambassadors are exactly what the term implies. They help members in fully realizing the benefits of their membership. At the same time, Ambassadors also serve as a conduit for information back to the Chamber Board of Directors, helping the chamber to gain a better understanding of its members’ needs and how best to meet those needs.
The focus of our Ambassador Committee is to welcome new members and help them meet longtime members, bringing all members together to promote business-to-business relationships. Retaining members is also a huge part of the Ambassadors role.
