Chamber Ambassadors

Chamber Ambassadors are the face of The Kerrville Area Chamber of Commerce

The mission of the Ambassador Program is to significantly improve the membership long term retention rate by building relationships with Chamber members by improving involvement and support of all Chamber events and activities. The time and energy that is devoted by Ambassadors to responsibilities naturally affect the degree and quality of the members and the Chamber’s Program of Work.

The Ambassador’s annual goal is to increase the retention rate of new and existing members by conducting a program of goodwill calls; reinforcing the benefits of Chamber membership, increasing members’ knowledge about programs, services and benefits of the Kerrville Area Chamber of Commerce; and keeping the channels of communication open between the membership and the Chamber’s Board of Directors.

Ambassadors aid the Chamber with membership retention by making personal thank you calls monthly, in person visits and by helping Chamber members understand and activate their benefits. The Ambassador will be assigned to a specific Ambassador retention team to ensure that every member is being touched by the Chamber during their membership.
