2017 Chamber Ambassadors

Chamber Ambassadors are a key group of Chamber volunteers. Through member interaction on calls, visits, and at Chamber events, Ambassadors provide member service assistance by reinforcing the benefits of Chamber membership, increasing the members’ knowledge of the Roanoke Regional Chamber, soliciting members’ input on Chamber programs, and opening more channels of communication between Chamber leadership and members.
