What is a Chamber Ambassador?

The Oconee County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are our volunteer business leaders in the Chamber that are experienced and active Chamber Members.  Our ambassadors assist in the recruitment of prospective Chamber Members by helping to drop off membership packets to potential businesses in Oconee County. They also serve as public relations representatives on behalf of the Chamber at business openings, ribbon cuttings, After Hours Events, Monthly Luncheon meetings and special events.
