Being an Ambassador for the Little Elm Chamber is an important role. For new members especially, you will be one of the first people they meet! As a representative of the Little Elm Chamber, ensuring that new and current members have a great experience is the primary role of an Ambassador.
What does an Ambassador Do?
Ambassadors are volunteers who help promote the Little Elm Chamber business community and support chamber functions. Projecting a positive image, assisting with volunteer roles at events, and reaching out to welcome new members and maintaining relationships with existing members are among the primary activities of an Ambassador. Examples of Ambassador tasks include: calling or visiting with a new member over coffee, inviting members to events, assisting with the event registration table or greeting attendees, and holding the ribbon at ribbon cuttings.
Why become an Ambassador?
Being an Ambassador is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to increase visibility for you and your business. The most important role is to adopt new members and help onboard them to the Little Elm Chamber and its benefits. This is also a solid way to build business relationships with members. And, because the role includes volunteering at events, you’ll often be seen in the published photos, have the distinguished role of introducing members to each other, and celebrate with new and expanding businesses at their ribbon cuttings. If you plan on attending events anyway, or have been wanting to build your business contacts, being an Ambassador just makes sense. In addition, if you desire to eventually serve on the Board of Directors, being an Ambassador will be a requirement to apply.
