Ambassadors- With only two full-time equivalents on staff, keeping up with over 250 members can be a challenge. Our Chamber relies on a core group of tireless volunteers we call Ambassadors to be our eyes, ears, and vocal champions in the business community. Our Ambassadors are the working arm of the Chamber, assisting staff by: volunteering or finding volunteers for activities such as the Nodaway County Fair Ambassador’s Parade, attending monthly luncheon meetings, staying well informed on the functions of the Chamber and relaying that information to others, attending ribbon cuttings, socials, and open houses, and contacting potential members during membership drives. The Ambassadors meet the 2nd Monday of every month at 12 p.m.
