A Chamber is only as good as its members. Get involved!!
Leads Referral Group
The goal of the Chamber Leads Referral Group is to assemble a group of professional, creative, focused, and fun individuals who will help to grow each other’s businesses through the exchange of referrals and business contacts in a non-competitive and mutually supportive manner within a structured environment.
The Ambassador Program consists of volunteers from the Chamber membership who donate their time to assist the Chamber in various activities. Ambassadors serve a term of one calendar year. Ambassadors can continue to serve after the one year term if agreed upon by the Ambassador and the Chamber.

• Opportunity to meet local business and community leaders
• Opportunity to help the community/show community pride
