Ambassador’s Mission Statement

The primary mission of the Ambassador Program is the retention of Goshen Chamber of Commerce Members, enlistment of new members, and goodwill representatives of the Chamber at a variety of functions. This outgoing group of people helps maintain contact with other Chamber members while promoting the Goshen Chamber of Commerce and its purpose.

The Ambassador Program consists of enthusiastic volunteers from the Goshen Chamber of Commerce’s membership who donate their time to help build member commitment and raise community awareness of Chamber activities and benefits. In doing so, the Ambassadors grow professionally and personally by building business relationships within the community. The program is ideal if you have a desire to become more active in the local business environment, raise awareness of your business or organization, and give back to your community.

Vision Statement

The Ambassadors will achieve the mission statement by attending Chamber functions and serve as the “meeters and greeters” at Chamber events, such as:

● Monthly Breakfasts
● Networking at Noon
● Member Orientations
● Ribbon Cuttings
● Grand Openings
● Dinner Galas
● Expos
● Great American Weekend

Ambassadors are the first contact new members will have with other members upon joining the Goshen Chamber of Commerce.

Requirements to Become and Remain and Ambassador

Be a member in good standing with the Goshen Chamber of Commerce that diligently attends Ambassador meetings and various events associated with the Chamber. Participation in the Ambassadors’ program requires a commitment on both the part of the Ambassador and their company. Ambassadors are asked to make a one-year commitment to the program and participate in the Ambassador Orientation Program.

Each Ambassador receives an Ambassador badge, which displays each individual’s name. It helps identify those who are active in the group. Additionally, it helps promote the Ambassador Program and facilitates our activities as official representatives of the Chamber. Badges are worn by the Ambassadors during networking activities and other Chamber events.
