Ambassadors are the liaisons between the Chamber and Brunswick County. Ambassadors welcome new businesses in the area, provide information on becoming a chamber member and check in with current members on an ongoing basis. These volunteers are an extension of the Chamber staff, supporting new and renewing members through active participation in the community.
