Reaching Out to the Community
The Ambassador Committee is the Chamber’s most visible volunteer group. Ambassadors host ribbon-cuttings and chamber events, recruit and welcome new partners, and serve as the liaison between the Chamber and the business community.
Ambassadors assist with partner recruitment and orientation and organize the Friday morning Coffee Connection and Tuesday morning Business Before Hours, popular business building events hosted by a different partner each week.
The Ambassador Committee continues to grow, with current membership of nearly 17 Ambassadors. The group meets from 8am to 9am on the second Wednesday of every month. Please visit the full calendar of events to see this month’s meeting location. If you are interested in what it takes to be an ambassador, please join us at our next meeting!
