The Chamber is pleased to announce the updating of our Ambassador Program! Are you interested in putting your business at the forefront of welcoming new Chamber members and businesses to the Fairfield area?
The Ambassador Program is now accepting applications for fifteen new Ambassadors and three additional Program Sponsors. Last year Ambassadors met with over twenty members on visits and welcomed members and the general public at several dozen additional Chamber functions.
The mission of the Ambassador Program is to:
How much time will this take?
New Ambassadors will receive a one-hour orientation on Ambassador etiquette and procedures for making contact with new and prospective members. Visits to new and existing members usually will take a half hour an d up to an hour if there is an optional tour. Welcoming at Chamber functions can take a half hour or more depending on your interest in mingling after the initial entry of guests.
What is the cost?
Program Sponsors will invest $300 per year and includes one Ambassador position if desired. Program Sponsors cover the cost of Ambassador photos in the Fairfield Ledger and are listed as sponsors under each photograph. You can also apply to be an Ambassador without being a Program Sponsor. The financial investment to be an Ambassador is $50 per year and one Ambassador shirt.
Do I have to attend all functions?
While we would like to see Ambassadors attend all member visits, we understand that you also have a business to run. We ask that you attend as many visits as possible.
Can my business have more than one Ambassador?
Businesses can apply to have a second Ambassador for an additional $50 annual investment. The benefit of having a second Ambassador is that your business has a higher likelihood of being present since you have two people who can now possibly attend events.
How do I apply to be an Ambassador?
You can come visit us at the Chamber and fill out an application or send the completed application to CEO@FairfieldIowa.com.
