Ambassadors are an exclusive group of business professionals who serve as advocates for the Chamber and the business community. Ambassadors are highly visible, prestigious volunteers who enjoy the rewards of making new contacts, strengthening relationships and accessing a wealth of information and resources. Ambassadors welcome new businesses to the area and inform them of the benefits of becoming a chamber member.
As an Ambassador you help to increase the retention rate of existing members by being responsive to members’ needs and reinforcing the value of chamber membership. Ambassadors encourage member participation in chamber activities, and will act as mentors to our new members to help our Chamber grow. Ambassadors accept the commitment of positive leadership in our Chamber and will work as a team of goodwill Ambassadors to our community. Ambassadors are the front-line representative for the Chamber at various networking events and fundraisers to welcome and engage members at these events.
Why become an Ambassador?
Being an Ambassador is an opportunity for you and your employer to gain recognition and heightened visibility in the community. Ambassadors gain business exposure by being the first to meet chamber members and put their company’s name in the forefront. By volunteering at chamber events you’ll often be seen in the published photos and have the distinguished role of introducing members to each other. By attending the monthly Ambassador meetings, your business is always involved and kept current on what is going on within the community. Being an Ambassador is also a great networking opportunity with business and community leaders. Ambassadors also contribute to growth and change in the Brunswick County area, and have a chance to give back to the community. Ambassadors also can gain awards and will receive monthly recognition for all the hard work and effort put forth. If you have been wanting to build your business contacts, becoming an Ambassador just makes sense.
