Chamber committees are comprised of volunteer members who are continuously working to improve the Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and shape its future. Through committee involvement, members have the opportunity to effect change in areas specific to their business, and to make important business contacts. Involvement in a Chamber committee advances everyone’s prosperity!
The Ambassador Committee is the life blood of the Chamber. The mission of this committee is an outreach and retention initiative to recruit new Chamber members and retain current Chamber members. This responsibility encompasses many activities and the members of this committee participate in the majority of the Chamber ceremonial functions, such as; ribbon cuttings, ground breakings and grand openings. The Ambassadors act as mentors for new members throughout the first year of Chamber membership.
