Ambassador Program Launched at Shenango Chamber

SHARON, Pa. – With an aim at promoting the Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce to its members and the community, the organization announced the launch of a new Ambassador Program.

A volunteer initiative, the Ambassadors are SVCC members, who will serve as brand representatives for the chamber and its services, assisting in recruiting new members and engaging them. Additionally, Ambassadors will support, encourage and spread good will amount existing members.

“Chamber ambassadors not only promote the chamber by becoming informed about its benefits, recommending its services and fostering relationships, but this program also allows them to network and gain personal/professional relationships,” said Olivia Brown, SVCC executive director.

The Ambassadors will serve as volunteers at events, promote through social media, give back to the community and play a critical role in boosting the identity of the chamber and cultivate the SVCC’s deep roots in the community, Brown said.

Those interested in applying to be an Ambassador must be a SVCC member in good standing or be employed by a member in good standing. Additionally, Ambassadors should have a willingness to volunteer along with schedule flexibility during the workday. Confidential applications are available through the SVCC.

The Ambassador program was introduced at a chamber event on July 5 and is a component of the new membership engagement initiative the SVCC began earlier this year – the Reingage, Recruit and Reenergize campaign.
