• Who are we?

  • Ambassadors are highly visible, prestigious volunteers who serve as the Chamber’s primary liaison to Chamber members.  Considered the goodwill arm of the Chamber, the Ambassador Council plays an essential role in member communication, retention and recruitment.  Each Ambassador is charged with conveying member needs, questions and concerns to Chamber staff.
