Mentoring Program

The Ambassador Mentoring Program pairs new Chamber members with Ambassadors. The goal of the program is to encourage meaningful and beneficial participation, on the part of the new member and the Ambassador in the Chamber's programs/events. New members who have a positive experience with the Chamber are more likely to continue their membership in the future. The program lasts a minimum of three months for each new member, but may continue longer as business relationships are developed.


Benefits to the Ambassador
:  The Mentoring Program gives both you and the new member an opportunity to build a lasting business relationship. As the relationship develops, both of you can benefit from increased business exposure, referrals and a widened business network. It is not an expectation that every Ambassador has time to donate to mentoring members. However, those that do will find ways that benefit both parties through better business to business relationships.
