Ambassador Mission
To welcome new members to the Chamber, to encourage new member participation in networking and promotion opportunities, and to represent the Chamber at community functions and new business openings.

Ambassador Commitment
As the public relations arm of the Midway Chamber of Commerce, Ambassadors are often the first contact for new and prospective members.  Encouraged to select the most effective activities to meet their personal and professional objectives.  All of the activities can be conveniently worked into your schedule.

How long have you been a member of the Midway Chamber of Commerce?
I have been a member of the Chamber for 9 years. 

What aspect of being a member do you find the most beneficial?
The aspect that I have found most beneficial is the mentorship that I've received by fellow members of the chamber. This help has been insurmountable both in my profession and as a small business owner. 

Why did you decide to join the Ambassador Committee?
I chose to join the Ambassador Committee because I would like to be a point of contact for new members and assist them in getting connected with fellow members as was done for me 9 years ago. 

How do you like to spend your time outside of work?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time in Lowertown and attending St. Paul Saints games.  I am an avid Green Bay Packer fan!
