The Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday announced that 62 individuals have completed the chamber's ambassador training.
Ambassadors for the chamber act as liaisons for new members as well as current ones. They inform new members of the service opportunities and benefits of engaging with the organization.
"I am always impressed by our ambassador program,” said Chamber President J. David Jameson. “These volunteers display a keen level of interest and commitment to helping us meet our goal of connecting and engaging our members. They are an asset to a chamber, and I look forward to working with this fine group during the year."
Jason Rabun of First Citizens Bank was named the 2015 chairperson of the ambassador program, and Gary Sullivan of Tyler Press, LLC. was named as its vice chair. The ambassadors represent a number of different industries, organizations and one staff member from the office of Rep. Joe Wilson.
“As a member of the business community, Bridgestone has chosen to sponsor the Ambassador Program for the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce again this year because of the impact these individuals have on welcoming and educating the new and existing chamber members," chair-elect and membership services specialist, Fran Jones said. "Ambassadors provide great service to the businesses in Aiken.”
