A Chamber Ambassador is a volunteer representative that acts as a liaison between the Chamber and its members. Greater Hewitt Chamber Ambassadors are an extension of the board of director’s leadership. Ambassadors are asked to serve one year terms, attend a minimum of six events annually and assist the Chamber with retaining current membership, greeting guests at events, set-up/clean-up, hospitality, welcome new businesses to town and special event promotion as needed. Ambassadors – if interested – may be nominated to serve as a Board Member, should an open seat become available. Ambassadors shall be selected through a process of application, recommendation, and approval by the Ambassador Committee and Board of Directors. The number of ambassadors is determined by the Chamber and Committee needs. Please fill out the application and return to the Chamber office via email if you are interested in becoming an Ambassador. The Committee will review your information provided and notify you promptly of the Chamber’s decision.
By participating in Chamber activities, ambassadors have opportunities throughout the year to earn “Ambassador of the Year” as decided by the Awards committee. Ambassador of the Year will be recognized at our Annual Banquet, in the printed directory and on the website.
