Inside the Chamber: December 5, 2019

December 05, 2019
Our Chamber Ambassadors are an extension of our Chamber team that helps serve our organizations’ 850 Shareholders and Investors.  They are our public relations team and are highly visible throughout your Chamber and the community. 
We are deeply grateful for the Ambassadors commitment to generously serve local business and support our mission. This group of dedicated volunteers builds and strengthens relationships with our partners, helps us stay connected and informed of their needs we can fill and allows us to express our sincere thanks for their continued partnership – and they do this important work with such passion and tenacity.  Last year, they made 2,128 touches on our behalf --- whether it was a personal visit, dropping a thank you note in the mail, typing a note of gratitude or showing their support at a ribbon cutting celebration or other special event. 
Please allow me to recognize these talented professionals that we’ve had the privilege of working arm-in-arm with over the last year.  They make a huge impact on your Chamber and greater community as a result.  Thank you, Chamber Ambassadors!
