Chamber ambassadors ready for 2015

 

A dynamic and enthusiastic group of ambassadors recently completed training for the Aiken Chamber’s 2015 program.  The 62-member team, who represent a cross section of the Chamber membership, qualified for the prestigious program.   

 

“This year’s ambassadors are a very energetic and lively group who demonstrate a true passion for the Chamber's mission and the important role they will play in it,” said Chamber Chair Bart Blackwell, B & S Machine Tool, Inc. Blackwell joined the ambassadors during their training program January 16.

 

"I am always impressed by our ambassador program,” said Chamber President J. David Jameson. “These volunteers display a keen level of interest and commitment to helping us meet our goal of connecting and engaging our members. They are an asset to a chamber, and I look forward to working with this fine group during the year,” Jameson said.

 

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.

 

This year’s corporate sponsor is Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC. Fran Jones, plant manager of Bridgestone’s Aiken Passenger Plant, said, “As a member of the business community, Bridgestone has chosen to sponsor the Ambassador Program for the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce again this year because of the impact these individuals have on welcoming and educating the new and existing chamber members.  Ambassadors provide great service to the businesses in Aiken,” said Jones, chair-elect and membership services for the Aiken Chamber.

 

The 2015 chair of the Ambassador Program is Jason Rabun, First Citizens Bank, and the vice chair is Gary Sullivan, TPI – Tyler Press, LLC.
