AMBASSADOR'S CORNER
Kayla Wickham is the Agency Owner of Farm Bureau Insurance, selling life, home, auto, commercial, umbrella, health, event, and farm insurance.

Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan was founded in 1949 for Michigan farmers who were looking for an insurance company that worked as hard as they did, gave honest service, and cared about Michigan's future.

Kayla loves that Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan feels like family. She says they care tremendously for their clients and still love to do face-to-face business as much as possible. Kayla also says that insurance doesn't have to be stressful; it is there to protect and give you peace of mind for the risks of everyday life.

The Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to have Kayla Wickham as one of our newest Ambassadors!
Do you enjoy mentoring and meeting new people? Maybe you have the calling to become an Ambassador?
Our ambassadors play a crucial role to maintain contact with Chamber members and help them recognize and utilize the value of their membership. They also ensure you are getting what you want out of our membership.

Ambassadors serve in many ways, such as:

  • Greeting members at Chamber functions and performing other goodwill projects such as ribbon cuttings, etc.
  • Encouraging participation of current members at Chamber functions
  • Visiting members in their businesses, and subsequently providing feedback to the Chamber
  • Mentoring new members

If you would like to know more about being a Chamber Ambassador, contact Deena at deenakalb@mt-pleasant.net.
