Hispanic Chamber Ambassadorship

As a member of the Hispanic Chamber, you may apply to become an Ambassador. An Ambassador becomes part of the “face” of the Chamber and contributes to making the Chamber’s events as hospitable as possible by serving on welcoming committees, helping with membership campaigns and acting as public relations liaisons related to networking and social events sponsored by the Chamber. After a brief qualification process, we can determine whether the Ambassador program is for you, and where in the program you would be the best fit.

Ambassadorship allows you to develop relationships and act as a Chamber liaison to your fellow Chamber members and the business community. Your goal as an Ambassador is to help foster the growth of the Chamber while helping to preserve the culture of inclusion and support of members and guests. As an Ambassador, your role with the Chamber is promoted during our event marketing activity. The goal of the Ambassador program is to create a synergistic relationship between the Chamber and your business, for the mutual growth of your business and the Chamber.
