Ambassadors Committee

The Visalia Chamber Ambassadors are volunteers from the community that serve as the welcome committee for new members, help with membership campaigns and act as public relations liasons related to networking/social events sponsored by the Chamber.

As the Chamber’s public relations committee, the Ambassadors perform many important tasks for the Chamber. Most importantly, they help recruit and retain members, assisting the Chamber in meeting its membership goals for the year.

To become a Visalia Chamber Ambassador, an individual must be an employee of a Chamber member whose membership is at the Business Connector level or higher.

Chamber Ambassadors are active members of the Visalia Chamber who enjoy the benefits of the Chamber and have a desire to serve by sharing these benefits with others.

Chamber Ambassadors have the opportunity to participate in high-visibility networking throughout the year and are often recognized at Chamber events.

Chamber Ambassadors receive a Chamber name badge.

Chamber Ambassadors are often the first Chamber members to learn of new programs and events being introduced to the community.

Chamber Ambassadors create business relationships with local businesses while serving the community.

Chamber Ambassadors are expected to attend 50% of all Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Openings, Business After Hours Mixers and Ambassador Breakfast meetings.

The Visalia Chamber hosts an Ambassador Breakfast on the fourth Thursday of each month at Visalia First Assembly Church located at 3737 S Akers Street.

During the Ambassador meetings, the Ambassadors are able to network with each other, make announcements, learn about upcoming events and programs from the Chamber and recognize one of their own as Ambassador of the Month.

The Ambassador of the Month is chosen by the Ambassador Chair and Co-Chair. The Ambassador of the Month has demonstrated a commitment to the Chamber Ambassador program through participation in Chamber events and through their efforts to retain and recruit new Chamber members.

The Epic Ambassador of the Year is announced during the Annual Member Meeting held in April. The Ambassador of the Year is selected from previous Ambassadors of the Month for their continued support of the Chamber, its programs and members.
