Ambassadors-Logo-02Ambassadors Committee

Ambassadors provide a valuable member-to-member link, understanding and responding to member needs. This committee actively assists members to be better informed about our Chamber’s work as well as opportunities to participate in Chamber programs.

Ambassadors are an extension of Chamber staff, they:

  • Assist members in obtaining maximum value from their Capital Region Chamber investment
  • Maintain a two-way communication link between the Chamber and its members
  • Retain existing members

Ambassadors benefit from being the first to meet new members and visit member organizations. In addition, Ambassadors help shape the membership of the Capital Region Chamber.

E-mail Rich Palmer or call 518.431.1446 to learn more about becoming an Ambassador.
