The Ambassador Program was established as a coalition of business professionals who act as Chamber representatives within the business community. The Ambassadors are an all-volunteer committee comprised of men and women of Chamber member firms who serve as the "goodwill arm" of the Chamber and thus are charged with extending the hand of friendship to new and old members alike. The Ambassadors promote retention by welcoming new members, making goodwill calls, assisting with ribbon cuttings and other member events and attending various Chamber functions. The Chamber relies on the Ambassadors to aid in relaying information to and from members, identifying member concerns and garnering support for the Chamber.
The Ambassadors serve to create and administer an integrated awareness of and involvement in the Roane County Chamber of Commerce. The group strives to assist in fulfilling the Chamber's mission to improve the business climate, economy, and quality of life in Roane County. A standout Ambassador, chosen by the Chamber Board's Officers and Committee Chairs at the end of the year based on performance, will be recognized at our yearly Chamber Banquet with a plaque and a cash prize of $500.
The Ambassador team meets the first Tuesday of every month at the Roane Alliance, 1209 N. Kentucky St, Kingston. Lunch is provided.
