The Ambassadors are the oldest and largest standing committee of the Grants Pass & Josephine County Chamber of Commerce. Ambassadors serve as the welcoming committee for the Chamber. Ambassadors are goodwill representatives or the public relations arm of the organization that works for business and community interests in Josephine County.
These volunteer committee members dedicate themselves to serving the entire Chamber membership by promoting the Chamber’s message and mission to fellow business professionals within our community. Committee members act as hosts at Business for Breakfast (Greeters), Business after Hours (Mixers), Ribbon Cuttings, Ground Breaking Ceremonies and assist at Chamber functions and special events. With the funds that they earn from projects they provide scholarships to students interested in business education.
Chamber Ambassadors also help with NETWORKING Opportunities
Business connections are a major benefit of Chamber membership. To increase this benefit, many members opt to join a networking group within the Chamber for more frequent and closely-knit connections.
Business for Breakfast (Greeters)
This active group of businesses and organizations start their Wednesday mornings early at 7:45-9:00 am with some laughs and announcements about what is going on in the community. Each week is hosted by a business at their location or the location of their choice that can accommodate 70-100 people so check the calendar to see who the business host is this week.
Business after Hours
Business after Hours is the premiere networking event for business professionals in the Grants Pass area. It is generally hosted by a business in a different location once a month 5-7p.m. This two hour time frame gives you the opportunity to discuss and share ideas while learning about other local businesses. It is a relationship-building experience held in a relaxed setting that benefits you and your company through added contacts and resources. Stay for 20 minutes or enjoy the full two hours. Get out there! Give people the chance to get to know you so they will want to do business with you.
