Would you like to increase your exposure, influence, and overall presence within the Chamber and the business community? If you answered yes, then the Tualatin Chamber Ambassador Committee might be a good fit for you. One of the most active and visible committees within the Chamber, the Ambassadors are a group of active Chamber representatives dedicated to recruiting new members and helping existing ones maximize their membership benefits through relationship building, professional development opportunities and volunteering.

The Ambassador Committee is geared toward involvement. You get in front of the movers and shakers’ of the Chamber, stay informed about economic development and the community, and receive recognition at functions. As a vital part of Chamber public relations, Ambassadors volunteer their time to help insure that Chamber events run smoothly and that the organization’s membership remains strong and well informed. Ambassador Committee members are highly visible and readily accessible at events such AM Networking and Ribbon Cuttings. They function as the event MC, greeter and more. Ambassadors play a vital role in member retention, recruitment and communication. The efforts of the Ambassadors help to keep the Chamber in tune with its membership.

The Ambassador Committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 8:30 – 9:45am. For more information on the Ambassador Committee please contact the Tualatin Chamber of Commerce at 503-692-0780 or get in touch with the Ambassador Chair: Ben Ashley,
