• Ambassadors

  • Chamber Ambassadors are volunteers who build relationships with our Chamber’s newest members, facilitate networking among members, and encourage meaningful participation and involvement in Chamber programs. Ambassadors attend monthly meetings, accept new member assignments at each meeting, conduct introductory new member interviews in-person or over the phone, and maintain monthly contact – via email or phone - with their assignments for one year. Contact Rebecca Dickenson, Vice President for Membership, at rdickenson@carolinachamber.org or (919) 357-9990 to volunteer as an Ambassador.
