Ambassadors Program: A handful of chosen investors are recruited to serve as “ambassadors” of the Chamber. These individuals are looking for ways to become more active in the community via the Chamber, but currently lack the needed amount of time to fully invest by serving on the Chamber board. Ambassadors compete for points in hopes of winning quarterly prizes through their attendance and participation in chamber luncheons, meetings, ribbon cuttings and events. This is a position a little more involved than that of a traditional investor, yet less active than that of an elected board member.
