Membership Resources

Membership Resources

The Chamber has a host of unique resources that are made available to its members throughout the year. Below are just a few of the special offerings that Chamber staff and volunteers encourage you to take advantage of whenever possible.

Ambassadors

The Chamber Ambassador program is an active group of volunteers designed to bridge the current active membership and new members with the services provided by the Chamber. Chamber Ambassadors welcome new members to the Chamber and share ways to get the most out of their membership through an informal mentor relationship. They assist with ground breakings, ribbon cuttings and monthly Business After Hours, serve as greeters at most Chamber events and help foster good will among the membership. The Ambassador program provides a great networking experience for its participants and has proven to be a creative resource for the development of future Chamber leaders.

Ambassador applications are accepted between October 1st and November 30th each year. All applicants will be formally interviewed by the Ambassador leadership team.
