Chamber Ambassadors, lending a helping hand

It takes people to connect with people, and The Chamber Ambassador Program is all about connecting with people. Our ambassadors work closely with the Chamber to make those connections throughout our community. By volunteering their time at Chamber events, talking with potential Chamber members, and celebrating our local businesses successes they are strengthening the framework of community.
