Ambassadors Program


Welcome to the Chamber of St. Matthews Ambassadors!


The Chamber of St. Matthews Ambassador Program promotes awareness about our Chambers benefits and services while encouraging members to become more involved in our organization.  Our Ambassadors are highly visible, prestigious volunteers who serve as the Chamber’s primary liaison to new Chamber members.  Considered by many to be the goodwill arm of the Chamber.  The Ambassador committee plays an essential role in member recruitment,

communication and retention, and each Ambassador is charged with conveying member needs, questions and concerns to Chamber staff, keeping our Chamber in line with our members’ needs, desires and expectations.

Our goals as one of largest Chambers in the greater Louisville area is to make sure all new and existing members feel like they are welcome and part of our family.  Help “connect” our members to new relationships.



The mission of the Ambassadors is to represent the Chamber by exhibiting the highest degree of professionalism, knowledge and integrity to our members and the business community.  Ambassadors will serve as the greeting arm of the Chamber to promote new member participation and retention.

For its overall goal, the Ambassadors stress continued personal membership contact, as well as continuous visibility and publicity.  To achieve this mission and goal, the Ambassadors participate in the following meetings, events and activities:

  • 5:05 After Hours Networking Events
  • Quarterly Ambassador Committee Meetings
  • Ribbon Cuttings
  • New Member Visits
  • Member Service Calls
  • Monthly Business Meetings
