Chamber Ambassador Taylor recognized
April 27, 2017
Dee Taylor, Commercial Account Executive/Business Development at Atlantic Broadband is the first recipient of the Ambassador of the Quarter Award in 2017. The award recognizes one member of the 56-member Ambassador team each quarter that goes above and beyond in their commitment to the Chamber and its members.
Valerie Thomas-Umsted, 2017 Ambassador Chair said, “Dee Taylor exemplifies the meaning of Ambassador. She always attends events with a smile on her face, engaging in conversation with other local businesses and keeping up to date with all the latest Chamber news. Dee is proud to be a Chamber Ambassador and it shows in her willingness to volunteer with local businesses in our community. I am honored to know and work with Dee. She truly has a passion for our community and the Aiken Chamber as a whole.”
The Chamber’s Ambassadors have a prominent position of responsibility in the business community. They act as the Chamber’s primary liaisons for new and existing members and are highly visible at Chamber events. They assist members by introducing them to the benefits and services of membership and by serving as a means for members to engage in the organization.
David Jameson, Aiken Chamber President/CEO presented the award to Taylor at the Chamber’s April First Friday Means Business breakfast April 7 at Newberry Hall.
“Dee is an excellent communicator of the Chamber’s mission. We are proud to have her on our team and appreciate the commitment she demonstrates to promoting the Aiken business community,” said Jameson.
Taylor had previously served as an Ambassador and took a break for a while. She missed the program and returned this January.
“Dee is a special person. She is genuine and caring. I was thrilled to have her recommit to the program and knew she would be an asset,” said Chamber Membership Services Director Emily Murphy who oversees the program. “She has not disappointed me.”
