Applications are online now to be a member of the Ambassador Program sponsored by the Friendswood Chamber of Commerce.
The program consists of enthusiastic volunteers from the Chamber membership who donate their time to help build member commitment and raise community awareness of Chamber activities and benefits.
In doing so, the Ambassadors grow professionally and personally by building business associations within the community.
Ambassadors build strong community connections, gain visibility for their business and get valuable business leads and contacts. They also obtain an insider’s view of what’s going on at the Chamber.
“This is a great program to join as a new member. You get to network, exchange business cards with the new business owners at ribbon cuttings, ground breakings and business mixers, and talk with them one on one. People do business with people they know and trust and that’s why becoming a Chamber Member works,” Chamber President Carol Marcantel said.
Ambassadors Team Members report they enjoy getting together at the Chamber office to discuss upcoming events and getting know about each other’s businesses.
The opportunity to join the Ambassador Team is a benefit of Chamber membership. The only cost is a $25 charge for the official Ambassador Name Tag to wear at all Chamber events.
