The ambassadors are a group of enthusiastic, high energy members who enjoy meeting new people and having fun. Ambassadors are the public relations arm of the Chamber and professional liaisons to the business community. They strengthen the Chamber’s relationship to its members and the community by providing an important member-to-member link-as only another member can.
Ambassadors serve as the face of the Chamber for new members and businesses in the community. They perform a wide variety of duties in the Chamber, but their main function is to help promote the Chamber, meet and greet new members, participate in business functions, assist with member retention, and make Chamber events successful and enjoyable for everyone. Ambassadors play an important role in educating, enlisting, and involving chamber members in committees and activities. They are a special group of people who volunteer their time to help promote the El Dorado business community and support Chamber functions. They meet once a month to discuss business and goals. They are vital in the representation of the Chamber during ribbon cuttings, open houses, ground breakings and other business events.
The Ambassadors look for new ways to not only get involved but also give back to our Chamber businesses by “popping in” with popcorn and other small gifts to Chamber members.
