Cheerleaders in business attire. That’s what serving as an Ambassador allows you to be, all while sharing your enthusiasm for the Chamber, supporting small businesses and increasing your business contacts throughout the community. Ambassadors, each from a different member organization, celebrate member ribbon cuttings and ground breaking ceremonies, honor long-standing members in the community, recruit new Chamber members and volunteer at events. Let’s Go Ambassadors!
