The Ambassadors are the public relations representatives for the Chamber. Part of the Ambassador's Mission is to promote, refer and connect with our existing members and to introduce prospective members to the Chamber. As an Ambassador you will be a mentor to both new and existing members by keeping them updated on Chamber activities and answering questions as to the value of their Chamber Membership.
The Chamber staff relies on our Ambassadors to assist with events and programs, and to help connect and promote businesses. The Chamber is the Voice of Business and our job is to assist our members in making their business successful.
It is a pleasure to work with each and every one of our Ambassadors. We appreciate the time and energy you put forth in making the Greater Merced Chamber of Commerce the leading business organization in the region. Our goal is to work with our business leaders - the Economic Engines of this community - and to promote and support their efforts.
