Membership Ambassadors

Mission. Vision. Values. Growth.

The Chamber Membership Ambassadors program creates a strong core of “chamber champions.” With the help of our trusted and valued ambassadors, the Chambers' presence is able to be felt in multiple places at once, making the most of time and resources.


Educate members on how to utilize networking and educational events to build a strong networking base.
Grow membership by making continued enhancements, and develop networking and future opportunities.
Represent individual affiliate Chambers at Chamber functions and act as a liaison between the Chamber and members.


The Ambassadors of the Central CT Chambers of Commerce will promote Economic Growth, Member Advocacy, and Member Development to help ensure a strong and vibrant Chamber for years to come.


Create invaluable experiences, engagements, and connections.
Impact the regional & local businesses, communities, and entrepreneurs.
Mentor new and existing members on positive growth between the Chamber and personal networks.
