This energetic group of people maintain contact with other Chamber members, serve as mentors for new Chamber members, and promote the Chamber of Commerce and its purpose. Ambassadors attend Chamber functions and serve as the “meeters and greeters” at Chamber events such as the monthly Business After Hours, Puttin’ On Pekin breakfasts, the Annual Meeting, business grand openings and ribbon cuttings, and Chamber forums. Many times, the Ambassadors are the first contact a new members will have upon joining the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce.
