The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce recently kicked off its 2011 ambassador program.
Each month, the chamber tallies up the score sheets that its 21 ambassadors turn in. The ambassador who accumulates the most points during the month and was the most active, professional and business-oriented volunteer is named ambassador of the month.
The chamber also names an ambassador of the year at the annual meeting in January. Last year’s ambassador of the year was Felicia Boatright-Beach with Strategic Business Solutions.
The ambassadors serve the chamber year-round as customer-service representatives, and they act as a conduit between the chamber and its existing and new members.
Ambassadors work on membership retention, encourage members to become more involved, help members learn more about the chamber and facilitate communication between members and the chamber’s board of directors.
Ambassadors also serve as greeters and participate in ribbon cuttings, grand openings and special events such as Business After Hours, new member receptions, the Illuminated Christmas Parade, Christmas in the Park, the annual Lowcountry boil, golf tournaments and other events as needed.
Ambassadors make new acquaintances and build relationships through early networking opportunities.
The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce named Lisette Villa of Liberty Tax the ambassador of the month for March and ShaQuawn Autery of Strategic Business Solutions the April ambassador of the month.
