Ambassadors

The mission of the Saginaw County Chamber Ambassadors is to promote the Chamber of Commerce through direct membership contact. Member retention and satisfaction are their ultimate goal. 

The Ambassadors are member volunteers who actively perform a variety of services for the Chamber including public relations, member retention, new member support, and event hosting. They are the goodwill, public relations arm of the Chamber and facilitate communications between the Chamber Board of Directors, staff and the members.

  • Ambassadors encourage the participation of members at all Chamber functions and make new members feel included.  They act as greeters and mentors, helping to build a strong and active membership. 
  • Ambassadors conduct hundreds of personal visits and contacts each year completing member surveys, delivering new member information, asking and answering important questions and performing a variety of tasks designed to strengthen member retention.  The information Ambassadors gather is invaluable in helping us evaluate and provide member communications, benefits and services. 
  • Working in teams, the Ambassadors provide assistance at Chamber events in areas such as registration, greeting, bartending and networking.  Events include ribbon cuttings, monthly ambassador meetings (generally the 2nd Tuesday of each month), grand openings, Percolator Breakfasts and Business After Hours among others.  They are also key volunteers at the Regional Business After Hours and the Chamber Golf Outing.

The commitment is great but so are the connections and community relationships that result.  Ambassadors are truly the "eyes and ears" of the Chamber.
