The primary mission of The Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce’s Ambassadors program is the retention of existing Brandon Chamber Members, enlistment of new members, and to serve as goodwill representatives of the chamber at a variety of functions. This energetic group helps maintain contact with other Chamber members while promoting the Brandon Chamber of Commerce and its purpose. Ambassadors attend Chamber functions and serve as “meeters” and greeters at Chamber events such as monthly Business After Hours, Coffee Clubs, ribbon cuttings and grand openings, and other Chamber events (i.e. Expo’s, membership luncheons, etc.). Ambassadors are the first contact that new members have upon joining The Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce.
What are ambassador benefits?
Brandon Chamber Ambassadors develop new business contacts in the Brandon area while increasing the community-wide recognition for themselves and their companies. Ambassadors learn new skills by working side by side with other talented professionals who work within the Greater Brandon Area. Monthly Ambassadors of the Month and annually Ambassadors of the Year are profiled on the Ambassador plaque that is displayed in the Chamber’s lobby. Ambassadors of the Month receive reserved parking space at the Chamber. Ambassadors receive recognition at Chamber Networking events and Annual Dinner. Ambassadors of the Month receive complimentary admission to the Chamber’s annual dinner. Additionally, Ambassadors attending ribbon cutting receive recognition within the monthly Brandon Business newsletter.
How do Ambassadors benefit the Chamber?
Ambassadors integrate members into the Chamber’s programs and services by meeting and greeting members at Coffee Clubs, Business After Hours, Ribbon Cuttings and other events. They help with membership retention through personal contact and keeping new members as informed and involved as possible. They promote attendance and participation at Chamber events, and help publicize Chamber events.
How does a Brandon area businessperson become a Chamber Ambassador?
Interested Chamber members should be willing to become actively involved with various events and committees of the Chamber. Only with this kind of commitment can the group achieve its goals and maintain its standard of excellence and service to the Chamber. Your involvement as an Ambassador is a volunteer representing the Chamber to the business and professional community.
Ambassadors make commitments to attend Coffee Clubs, Business After Hours, ribbon cuttings, membership luncheons, assist in greeting during the “Taste of Brandon™,” and New Member Orientations.
Requirements to remain an Ambassador:
Diligently attend the meetings and various events of the Chamber. Be a member in good standing of The Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce and participate in programs and activities sponsored by the Chamber. Participation in the Ambassadors program requires a commitment on both the part of the Ambassador and his/her company. Ambassadors are asked to make a one-year commitment to the program. Ambassadors can expect to spend 3-4 hours per month fulfilling expectations.
Each Ambassador receives an Ambassador badge, which displays each individual’s name. It helps identify those who are active in the group. It helps promote the Ambassador program and facilitates our activities as official representatives of the Chamber. Badges are by Ambassadors during networking activities and other Chamber special events.
