Committees

Ambassador Committee
Open to all members.
The Ambassadors’ serve as the GBCC welcoming committee.  Committee members attend Ribbon Cuttings to welcome new members to the chamber. In addition, Ambassadors should attend monthly networking events to make sure “new or shy” members are introduced to other members and feel connected to the organization. If you love meeting new people and networking, this is the committee for you!  The ambassadors will also support the efforts of the membership committee during membership drives.
