Chamber Ambassadors are active members of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce. They are a special group of people who volunteer their time to help promote the Greenwood business community and support Chamber functions. Ambassadors perform a wide variety of duties; but their main function is to help promote the Chamber and welcome new members.
Ambassadors also attend and volunteer at Chamber events and ribbon cuttings, which are promoted on our website, social media, and through our weekly newsletters.
