Previous Ambassadors of the Month

Ambassadors serve as the organization's customer service liaison. Ambassadors create goodwill, promote member retention, and act as intermediaries between the business community and the Chamber of Commerce staff.

The Ambassador of the Month title is given to the Ambassador with the most points each month in recognition of their outstanding service to the Chamber, so help us to congratulate our Chamber Ambassadors of the Month.
