SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Tahoe Chamber is offering the opportunity to develop new business relationships through its Ambassador Program. Applications for the 2016 Chamber Ambassador Program are currently being accepted through Friday, Jan. 15. The chamber’s ambassadors are a group of professionals that interact with and assist chamber members on a variety of levels. Joining the Ambassador Program is a good opportunity for those looking to develop business relationships and become more engaged in the South Shore community.

“I became an Ambassador because I knew it would be a great way to meet people and become more involved in the business community,” said Tahoe Chamber Ambassador Jody Taylor of Radix Mortgage. “It has also helped my company and my business be better known in Tahoe.”

Ambassadors play a vital role through their interactions with South Shore business owners to learn about what topics and issues are impacting their businesses. Ambassadors also serve as liaisons for chamber members and encourage member-to-member interactions and relationship building. Ambassadors are present at all chamber functions including ribbon cuttings, mixers, member meet-up lunches and signature events such as the upcoming April 1 Business EXPO at Harveys.

“Personally I was able to go to mixers and other functions with more of a purpose and it allowed me to meet several members of the community that I call good friends today,” said former Ambassador and current Tahoe Chamber board member Todd Poth of Getaway Magazine. “Professionally, it allowed me to make more contacts with other chamber members than I ever would have thought possible. It was also one of the first steps that allowed me to understand the inner workings and value of chamber membership and how to truly use the resources the chamber provides the business community.”

Ambassadors are asked to commit to attending a minimal number of events throughout the year in addition to developing relationships with a few members in 2016.

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday. To apply, visit http://www.tahoechamber.org or contact membership services director Justin Sinner for more details.

Tahoe Chamber is a bi-state chamber serving over 650 companies on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. The chamber focuses on leadership, governance and the economy, leading to an improved quality of life for residents and enhanced quality of experience for visitors.
