2016 Ambassadors Roster
Chamber Ambassadors are Chamber members in good standing who volunteer for a 12-month term to enhance member retention and involvement. Ambassadors are individuals who know the Chamber well, and can help educate new and existing members about the benefits of membership and involvement. Ambassadors are some of the most visible Chamber members, and have the opportunity to increase their network, as well as their leadership skills through the ambassador program.
Ambassadors are highly visible volunteers who serve as the Chamber’s primary liaison to new and current Chamber members. Considered the goodwill arm of the Chamber, the Ambassador committee plays an essential role in member communication and retention.
Ambassadors actively promote membership in the Chamber, facilitate networking among members and encourage meaningful participation and involvement in Chamber programs and events in order to enhance the membership benefits received by each member, strengthen member commitment and increase long-term member retention.
