Chamber Ambassadors seeking new members

Marissa Freireich
Williams-Grand Canyon News Reporter

People who want to get involved in the community can join the Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Program.

According to the program's mission statement, "The Ambassadors serve as the official representatives on behalf of the Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce, dedicated to promoting the business community and helping to expand Chamber Membership."

The benefits of becoming an Ambassador include participating in local events, making new friends and meeting business and community leaders.

The responsibilities of an Ambassador may include attending and helping with Chamber and community events, providing information about the Chamber, and visiting businesses to promote Chamber membership.

Currently, the Chamber has fewer than 10 Ambassadors, but is hoping to add more.

"We know that there are a lot of new people in our community that want to be involved," said Alyson Fritsinger, chair of the Chamber Membership Care Committee.

To boost Ambassador membership, the Chamber Membership Care Committee will have Ambassador Program brochures available at mixers and events to explain more about the program.

One of the new goals of the Ambassador Program is for some members to visit a few businesses between meetings and leave an Ambassador business card.

"It's a great way to get into new stores and just talk to people and get to meet people, find out what their business is like," said Gioia Goodrum, Chamber president.

Fritsinger added that the local businesses can succeed by working together.

"I think what we have to do is open our arms as a community and welcome them, because we grow when we are together," Fritsinger said. "When we are out there isolated all doing our own little thing, we're not growing. It has to be a group focus."

Those who are not interested in visiting businesses can get involved through helping at community events, including parades, rodeos and cleanup days.

"There's always something happening that people are looking for volunteers, so it's not just to do Chamber kinds of stuff," Goodrum said.
