Chamber Ambassadors

Sedona Chamber Ambassadors are goodwill representatives that provide outreach efforts to the members. We are an important member-to-member link offering welcome services to new members, helping introduce new members to the many programs and initiatives the Chamber offers ensuring their best use, and helping new members to meet others during our monthly Mixers. We also assist in the recruitment of new members through our familiarity with the community. We bring member concerns back to Chamber staff and help members to receive the maximum benefit from their Chamber membership.

As Ambassadors, we:

  • Attend the monthly Ambassadors meeting
  • Attend the monthly Mixers
  • Visit each month’s new members to offer welcome services

As Chamber Ambassadors, we invite you to join us.
