We believe in cultivating the next generation of business leaders.

Our ambassadors are a group of professionals from various backgrounds who serve as liaisons with our members. The goal of the Ambassadors is to encourage meaningful participation in the Chamber’s programs and services for new members in an effort to build member commitment and increase member retention.
