The Chamber of Commerce celebrates its vibrant and changing business community through the efforts of the Ambassadors. These talented volunteer members extend the public relations arm of the Chamber by attending business open houses, groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings. They welcome new businesses to the Alexandria area and commemorate new locations and major remodels for existing businesses. These visits allow the Ambassadors to tour the business, visit with the owners and staff, present a recognition plaque and take photos for publication in the Chamber newsletter. Service to this committee is by appointment and requires daytime business hours availability.
