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.

Ambassador Award

Ruth Marie Bauer,

Ambassador of the Year

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.

Additional activities include serving as greeters at Business After Hours Mixers and Networking luncheons, attending ribbon cuttings/grand openings, and participation in the Annual Operation Thank You Campaign and the membership drive. Ambassadors are required to participate in a 50% combination of the following additional Chamber events: Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, The Big Shoot, the Kerrville Choice Awards Banquet and the Business

The Benefits include:

  • Greater visibility for your business
  • Opportunities to interact with new businesses in the Kerrville Area
  • Greater opportunity to direct input to the Chamber
  • Exclusive opportunities and priority invitations to community activities and events
  • Lasting business relationships and lifelong friendships
