Chamber Ambassadors

The Ambassador Program is a member recruitment and retention program for Chamber members who wish to help expand the membership of the Chamber while providing them an opportunity to increase exposure for them and the business they represent. The Ambassadors will work on a volunteer basis as a liaison between businesses and the Chamber.
