What are the Chamber Committees, Councils and Programs? Where do I sign up?

Ambassador Council

The Ambassador Program consists of enthusiastic volunteers from the Chamber membership who dedicate their time to help build member engagement and raise awareness of Chamber activities and benefits. Ambassadors grow professionally and personally by building business relationships within the community. Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the Chamber and its members.
