Are you interested in being a Chamber Ambassador? If so, you will join an elite group of knowledgeable representatives and treasured volunteers who help in our growth. The ambassador program is designed to facilitate positive business relationships through goodwill actions. The goal of an ambassador is to increase the retention rate of new and existing members.

Being an ambassador is a great way to stay current with business issues in our community, welcome and support businesses, and build business relationships.

Ambassadors act as conduits between the Chamber and members.

They are highly visible in our programs. They participate in all types of programs including ribbon cuttings, groundbreaking ceremonies, luncheons and special events. Their involvement helps them to stay current with business issues in our community and receive feedback from members. Through their friendly and personable interactions, they are able to provide input, recommendations and feedback which are critical for improving member experiences.

They build business relationships that strengthen our community.

An ambassador can build relationships with other business professionals that result in growth for both parties and form a stronger business community. They help by welcoming and supporting new and existing members. They also encourage members to participate in activities such as our monthly network luncheon, Business After Hours, 12 at 12 luncheon, and other programs. Their assistance is essential in getting members actively involved so they can get the best return on investment from their membership and increase sales.

They keep communication channels open.

An ambassador is involved in our committee that provides year-round customer service. Some of the ways they provide customer service are through making personal calls, emails and visits to help retain members. Since they keep current with our business plan, they are knowledgeable about the great things happening at the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber. By keeping abreast of important details and information, they are also able to share important news and information.

Volunteering for the chamber requires an extra commitment of time and has certain requirements such as attending monthly meetings and program activities. It can be very rewarding. They receive increased exposure for their company, expand their contact list and get enhanced career development and networking skills. “It is a joy to represent the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber in welcoming and supporting new and current businesses in our community,” said Brenda Landers of Alcovy Media. “I have built not only business relationships but friendships as well.”
