The Chamber Ambassadors are key in recruiting new chamber members and making sure the existing members are making the most of their Chamber membership.  They function as the hospitality arm of the Chamber, helping members feel welcomed, connected, and informed.  The Ambassadors meet on the third Thursday of each month, at 11am.  They play a key role in planning the Annual Golf Outing, 4th of July Parade, and the year-end Member Christmas Social.  Ambassadors also attend the Ribbon Cuttings, Business After Hours, Ground Breakings, Open Houses, and other community events.
