The Chamber’s programming is supported, in part, by our five councils. The Workforce Development, Governmental Relations, Young Professional Advisory, Business Development and Ambassadors Councils provide strategic planning and support for issues affecting our community.
The Chamber Ambassadors are a crucial component of the Chamber’s friendly, welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. Serving as our membership council, these members are a point of engagement with new and existing members at Chamber events and related functions. Additionally, our Ambassadors assist members in maximizing their membership benefits. For more information, contact Gabe.
