About the Ambassadors Committee

As a key role in the Chamber’s retention plan, the Ambassador Committee serves as member relations support and assists with efforts to retain members through consistent personal interaction and involvement. The Ambassadors welcome new members, continue to engage current members and recognize members celebrating milestone Chamber anniversaries. They attend ribbon cuttings and grand openings in the community in addition to Chamber functions. They are the motivated and outgoing volunteers who are always available to help with your Chamber membership.

If you are interested in joining the Ambassadors or would like more information, please contact Tracy Wilson at 813-276-9464.
