The Chamber Ambassadors mission is to assist the Chamber in retaining members. Membership retention gained by connecting, promoting and creating a stronger chamber community.
Ambassadors are important to the Chamber
Your job as an Ambassador is to utilize your skills and provide a communication link between our membership and the Chamber and between our community and the Chamber.
As an Ambassador, your role includes mentoring new Chamber members, promoting membership, encouraging participation in Chamber functions, greeting members at events, volunteer, participation and support of various programs and projects evolving around the business community.
The Chamber’s credibility is closely linked to your credibility as an Ambassador. It is very important that you carry out your Ambassador responsibilities in a professional manner.
The Ambassador Committee is composed of 15-30 active member volunteers who donate 3-5 hours per month toward various Chamber activities. Ideally this would be a 2-year commitment.
- Committee members are required to be current member of the Chamber
- Have employer’s approval to participate
- Participate in Ambassador Orientation
- Attend bi-monthly meetings
- Always promote the Chamber in a positive manner
