This exclusive group of business professionals serves as advocates for the Chamber and the business community. Ambassadors enjoy the rewards of making new contacts, strengthening relationships and accessing a wealth of information and resources.
Ambassadors meet once per month at the Chamber unless otherwise noted.
As Chamber Ambassadors, we represent an informed and active group of business leaders who serve as liaisons between CCAACC and our community. Our goal is to increase and retain members by active participation in our business community and chamber functions, programs and committees. We will maintain communication between our Board of Directors and our fellow Ambassadors and encourage attendance to all Chamber functions. We will continue to act as mentors to our new members to help our Chamber grow. We accept the commitment of positive leadership in our Chamber and will work as a team of goodwill Ambassadors to our community.
