The Chamber | Ambassadors




Twenty volunteers from Chamber member businesses make up the Chamber’s public relations team called the Ambassadors. Ambassadors are active and visible in the area by representing the Chamber at ribbon cutting ceremonies, Business After Hours, Welcomeburger and other Chamber events.


Ambassadors represent the Chamber and the city of Ottawa year-round, and are an essential part of the Chamber’s success. They assist and volunteer for special events and visit new and potential members as well as current members. The Chamber Ambassadors are proud of Ottawa and actively share that enthusiasm with others.


Chamber members may request that the Ambassadors attend ribbon cuttings, groundbreakings, and open houses to enhance their event. Contact the Chamber today if you have an upcoming event and would like the Ambassadors to attend.
