Help shape your Victoria.
Become an ambassador.

Ambassadors are liaisons who serve as the face of the Victoria Chamber of Commerce. Ambassadors represent, promote and encourage participation in the Victoria Chamber while maintaining contact with new and current members. They also serve as greeters at various chamber networking functions.

Ambassador members participate in:

  • New Business ribbon cuttings .

  • Groundbreaker events.

  • Monthly Ambassador luncheons.

  • Ambassadors are volunteers who provide a valuable service to our organization. By maintaining a strong connection with our members, ambassadors develop business relationships and maintain networks that strengthen the chamber.

    Benefits of Serving as an Ambassador:

      The networks you maintain and the relationships you build provide considerable benefit to you and your business:
    • Network with business leaders.

    • Exposure of your name and company throughout the business community.

    • Gain knowledge of resources and leads through the Chamber and fellow Ambassadors.

    • Obtaining an inside perspective to the Victoria business community.

    • Recognition awards for outstanding service.

    • If you are not presently a member of this fun group, consider the benefits of joining this dynamic volunteer organization. The Ambassadors are known around town for their friendly smiles and distinctive red attire. They proudly serve the community as dedicated and diplomatic envoys to spread goodwill appearing at ribbon cuttings and other Chamber events. If you want to make new friends, network and lend support to new and established business owners, please consider joining the Ambassadors. The annual dues are $30. Ambassador luncheons are scheduled the fourth Wednesday of every month.
