Event & Programs | Ambassador Program

Several of our 2017 Ambassadors Team

The Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors Program is a great way to get more involved in the chamber, and most importantly, to network!

The Ambassadors help to welcome new members by attending ribbon cuttings, serving as greeters at chamber networking events, and by calling on new members. They also help to keep existing members involved by visiting or calling them, and encouraging them to get engaged and attend chamber events. Ambassadors also play an important role in bringing new members to the chamber!

The Ambassadors have a monthly luncheon where they honor the Ambassador of the Month. Ambassadors earn points for their activities to try and earn this coveted title! Interested? Contact Ryan Abrey, or call 469-587-0420.
