Santa Cruz Area Chamber Ambassador Program
The Chamber Ambassadors are a team of Chamber members who volunteer to engage with new members, Chamber event participants, and the Santa Cruz Community on behalf of the Chamber. Ambassadors guide new members through the first year of membership and connect new members to the Chamber, its benefits and activities.
Ambassadors also connect with current members, encouraging their active participation and robust use of opportunities the Chamber provides. And, the Ambassadors promote the business community and the Chamber throughout the community.
Ambassadors meet as a team once a month and make a commitment to attend 50% of all Chamber events including Networking Mixers, Ribbon Cuttings, Wake Up, Santa Cruz Breakfast series, Women in Business luncheons, Membership luncheons, Breakfast Briefings and the Chamber's four annual major events.
The greatest return for being an Ambassador is the development of a rich network of business friends and acquaintances that will pay returns for years to come. In addition, Ambassadors earn public recognition as well as the credits against the cost of Chamber events. Top performing Ambassadors are featured on a rotating basis on the Chamber’s website and in the Chamber’s weekly eNews mailings to members. Ambassadors earn credits for each scheduled communication with a member, each event they attend, and other services. Credits earned can be used towards not only events but also Chamber member marketing services, sponsorship, and products.

Congratulations to the top three Ambassadors of 2017 for going above & beyond!
