The Chamber Ambassadors are volunteers within the Chamber that focus on member retention, engagement and recruitment.  This group of volunteers work throughout the year attending events like Business Before and After Hours, ribbon cuttings and Business of the Month presentations to meet potential and new members. They work with new members of the Chamber to introduce them to longtime members and they work with the Chamber staff to recruit new members. The Ambassadors have monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events in the Chamber and the community as well as potential mentoring opportunities.
