Volunteers make a difference to Chamber, community

The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has had a profound impact on the region in more than a century of service in executing its mission: to advance and promote the economic health and quality of life of the region. A group that has been instrumental in the Chamber´s growth and influence is the Ambassador Committee, which is charged with selling the benefits of becoming a Chamber member.

Ambassadors help sell Chamber memberships by calling on their contacts and new businesses. They work in teams or with Chamber staff to talk about the value of investing in the community through the Chamber of Commerce. With critical input from our Ambassadors, the Chamber has expanded and adjusted its member benefits over the years as the community continues to grow and member expectations continue to evolve.

As Chamber Board members, we each serve as a liaison to a Chamber committee during our term of service. Our responsibility is to keep our various committees appraised of actions and issues taking place at the Board level and to also share information with the Board about the important work our committees perform. I had the privilege of working with the Ambassador Committee for a few years during my term. It´s hard to describe the positive impact of this committee of fun, hard-working and dedicated Chamber volunteers who represent a variety of business sizes and industries. Throughout our committee structure, we have many long-time and new volunteers alike. The blending of wisdom from the veteran and the enthusiasm of the newcomer makes for an exciting and successful committee.

This issue of Chamber News celebrates our Ambassadors. Later this month they´ll be gathering for a reunion and anniversary party. This is a very sociable group and I´m certain they´re all looking forward to the event! Thank you to our current and past Ambassadors for your service to the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce!

For those members who are looking to engage in a volunteer opportunity, I encourage you to look at the options available to you through your Chamber membership. You can influence the future of our community and the Chamber organization as well as make some great friends and business relationships along the way. Contact the Chamber staff to learn more – (605) 336-1620.
