Chamber Committees

All members are welcome to get involved in all of our committees. We have an array of monthly meetings for you to attend.

Ambassadors

By becoming an Ambassador, you make a commitment to the Chamber, your company and your fellow members, to make the Chamber an organization of which we can all be proud.

Ambassadors are the official "meeters and greeters" for the Chamber. They handle a variety of duties at all regular and special events including Networking Breakfasts, the Annual Village Venture Arts & Crafts Faire and Ribbon Cuttings.  An Ambassador must be a Chamber member in good standing and attend Breakfasts, Ribbon Cuttings, Lunches and Special events.
