Ambassadors are goodwill representatives of the Chamber who work for business and community interests in the Savannah area. These hard-working volunteers perform a key role in member relations and retention by working as a liaison between the Chamber and its members.

Ambassadors serve to orient new members and help ensure they maximize their Chamber membership by providing information on the Chamber’s many opportunities and upcoming events. Ambassadors also contact members on their six-month membership date to inquire about participation and record feedback from those members. Ambassadors may also serve as the welcoming committee at special events such as business connections, luncheons, ribbon cuttings, and other Chamber networking events.
