The Chamber Ambassadors: Working To Make Our Organization Stronger & Better

The Chamber Ambassadors are the volunteer arm of the Chamber, assisting with member engagement, special events and fundraising. The group was formed nearly 30 years ago under then Chamber president, Curt Klein. It began hosting an annual Burger Bash nearly 10 years ago and this event has grown into a summertime tradition and a favorite of many Chamber members. A portion of the proceeds from the Burger Bash fund the annual Anita Jackson Community Scholarship. Anita was a founding member of the Ambassador group and a long-time Franciscan University employee. Retired educator, Patricia Fletcher, is another founding Ambassador who still serves today. The Chamber would like to recognize this important group for their hard work and dedication to the local business community.
