Become a Chamber Ambassador and Promote Your Business

ATTENTION SALES AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONALS:
Does your job require you to cold call companies?
Do you need to bring in a certain number of new prospects each week or month?
Are you have trouble getting your foot in the door at some companies?
Do you need more prospects in your sales pipeline?
Your Chamber of Commerce has the answer for you!

JOIN THE CHAMBER AMBASSADORS!
This volunteer group calls on Chamber members every month to invite them to events and provide help they may need. We would provide Ambassador members with lists of companies to contact on the Chamberโ€™s behalf. The best part is that you can ALSO promote your company at the same time.
How does it work?
  • Chamber provides lists of companies to call on each month.
  • You can contact them via email, phone or personal visit.
  • Let them know what is going on at the Chamber.
  • AND let them know what YOUR COMPANY does at the same time.
  • The Chamber is a GREAT door opener for over 600 companies in the region.
  • Meet other ambassadors and increase your local network.

If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, join us for the Ambassador Recruitment Event on December 18th. More information below.
