Our Ambassadors are an extension of the Solano Black Chamber of Commerce brand in the community. They become well known to our membership at large, and are able to expand their network and create stringer community connections.
The Ambassador Team serves as an elite group of Chamber members volunteering to assist the Chamber staff with member retention and welcoming new members.
