Ambassadors Council

The Ambassadors Council is an elite group that serves for a two-year term with the St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce. They take the lead role in assuring that each of our member businesses is valued, represented and connected by calling on existing members to update them on current activities, policies, and special events as well as asking about the member’s business and how the Chamber can best serve them. Ambassadors also act as official greeters at our monthly luncheons and Business After Hours events to help new members and first-time attendees feel more at ease and to introduce them to other members.

Like all of our committee members, Ambassadors are volunteers. They are outgoing, experienced Chamber members who know how to get the most benefits from their membership, and are willing to enthusiastically share that knowledge with other members. They are owners of or employees of member St. Tammany Chamber businesses.
