Chamber Ambassador Committee At All-Time High

The Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce’s Ambassador Committee has grown to an all time high, reaching 30 active and involved members.  The Ambassador team is the goodwill arm of the Chamber, committed to attending ribbon cuttings, grand openings, ground breakings, new member orientations, as well as helping with events such as Business After Hours, Business Before Hours, the Annual Membership Campaign, Membership Meeting, Annual Golf Tournament, and the recruitment and retention of members.

“The Ambassador team is not only strong in numbers and activity level but they are strong because of the dedication and professionalism of each member,” said Phillip Baker, chair of organizational development for the Chamber. “This group really cares about the community and shows it through their countless hours of volunteer service.”

The Chamber Ambassadors will be instrumental in executing the goal of the Chamber’s Member Contact Plan in which, over the next 18 months, every member of the Chamber will be contacted. These visits are meant to build relationships with all members, show appreciation for their investment, and gain valuable feedback about their membership.
