What is an Ambassador?
Ambassadors are a highly visible, prestigious group of volunteers who give their time to provide a crucial link between the Chamber, its members, and the community. Our Ambassadors are passionate about the Chamber, and their involvement not only benefits our organization, but their participation helps their own business exposure as well.
Ambassadors are an essential front-line representative of the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce at public and Chamber-sponsored events and help to ensure that all members receive the maximum benefit from their investment. They enjoy the rewards of making new contacts, strengthening relationships, and accessing a wealth of information and resources that lead the way to greatly enhancing any business or organization’s success.
Ambassadors serve primarily as the liaison between the Chamber staff and membership. Ambassadors attend and help execute Chamber functions and serve as “hospitality heroes” at events such as Breakfast and Business, Lunch and Learn, Hartselle After Hours, Ribbon Cuttings, Groundbreakings, and Grand Openings, as well as community events such as Depot Days and Serve Day.
They help raise awareness of Chamber activities and benefits to members and encourage meaningful and beneficial participation in the Chamber’s programs and events. Chamber Ambassadors also help to enlist new members in the Chamber and help new members be informed and involved. They serve as goodwill representatives of the Chamber at various community events throughout the year.
The Ambassador Program is very popular and consists of volunteers selected from within the Chamber membership. Ambassadors serve a term of one calendar year, beginning in January of each year. Ambassadors can continue to serve after the one-year term if agreed upon by the Ambassador, his/her employer, and the Chamber.
