Chamber’s Ambassador Program is a success

Our Ambassador Program has been an integral part of the Grundy County Chamber. Not only do they help me in my position as membership director by doing retention and recruitment calls and visits with members, but they also educate members on the benefits of the chamber, assist at events, including ribbon cuttings, Business After Hours and Coffee & Company, and act as a liaison between chamber members and the chamber staff.

Joining the program is a great opportunity to meet and network with people in the business community, increase visibility for your own business, and make new friends. It is also an opportunity for personal growth.

The Ambassadors meet the second Friday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at various restaurants throughout the county. In order to be an Ambassador, your company must be a part of the chamber and in good standing.

The group is currently hosting a speed networking event at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the Holiday Inn Express, 222 Gore Road in Morris. This event will be a great opportunity to get to know everyone.

It is often difficult to meet everyone in attendance at our Business After Hours and Coffee & Company networking events. Speed Networking allows you to get one-on-one time with each person in attendance. The event is $10 for Chamber members and $15 for nonmembers. We are limiting attendance to one person per company. To RSVP for speed networking or to find out more information about the Ambassador Program, call us at 815-942-0113 or send me an email at samantha@grundychamber.com.
