You’ve seen them at the check-in desk at networking events, pouring drinks at various functions and wearing blue name badges. The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee is one of the most active and dedicated groups of volunteers.

The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking applicants for its 2017 Ambassador Program. Members in good standing are welcome to apply for one-year terms that will begin in January 2017. You might be wondering what makes a good Chamber Ambassador? Here are some traits:

1. General Chamber Knowledge

Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors can often be found at Member Orientation sessions. They are well-grounded in the benefits of membership and can offer advice on ways to get involved, opportunities to promote your business and which Chamber events might fit a members particular interest.

2. Established Community Presence

Many Ambassadors are graduates of Leadership Winter Park. Many have been in business for many years, or are retired local business executives. Some are even past chairman of the Chamber board.  All of our Ambassadors have been Winter Park Chamber of Commerce members for a year, or more, to ensure that they are familiar with the Chamber, its members and the community at large.

3. Hospitality is Their Middle Name

Chamber Ambassadors are some of the most welcoming and hospitable people you’ll meet. Some are more out-going than others, but they are all ready, willing and able to greet members, make connections and help build relationships.

Still think you have what it takes? Download the Ambassador Guide and Application below. Applications are due October 31, 2016, after which an interview process will be implemented. Questions? Contact Jay Rupert.
