Ambassadors are active members of Commerce Lexington who volunteer their time to assist with Commerce Lexington’s member relations and retention efforts. The role of the Ambassador is to serve as a mentor to members and to help members make business connections through Commerce Lexington. Ambassadors are required to call their assigned member contacts, to meet them at Commerce Lexington events and ensure their involvement and participation—the keys to member satisfaction. Ambassadors also represent Commerce Lexington at community ribbon cutting and grand opening events.
Ambassadors welcome new members to events and help them connect with other members while promoting their respective businesses. Ambassadors are easily recognized at events by their Commerce Lexington Ambassador name badges.
Inherent in this role is an understanding that Ambassadors educate members on the benefits available to them through their membership. Therefore, each Ambassador must have a good understanding of the benefits of Commerce Lexington, including personal experience with networking events.
Attendance at bi-monthly Ambassador Committee meetings is mandatory.
Active Ambassadors gain exposure for themselves and their companies and are eligible for prizes and recognition awards.
Selection for the committee will be based on the following criteria:
- History and level of participation in Commerce Lexington (heavily weighted)
- Occupation/Industry (to achieve diversity on the Committee)
