Ambassadors

The Milton Area Chamber of Commerce MAP Program consists of 12-17 Ambassadors that represent 10-13 businesses each. Ambassadors are encouraged to introduce themselves to the members and frequently share information with these businesses regarding upcoming events, training, seminars, networking sessions, or any opportunities that would provide value to their membership.

The purpose of the Ambassadors is to act as a liaison between the MACC membership and Board of Directors. The Ambassadors shall act as hosts/hostesses for MACC functions, recruit new members, welcome new businesses and professionals, attend Welcome Ceremonies, groundbreakings and Business After Hours, contact existing members and act as the public relations arm of MACC. Being an Ambassador provides the volunteer extended business contacts through active association with volunteers and members, professional and community recognition for both the volunteers and their firms and expanded communication and marketing skills.
