Greater Irvine Chamber Ambassador Training Program Graduates Three New Members
Wednesday, March 06, 2019
Three Greater Irvine Chamber members have recently graduated from the Chamber’s Ambassador Training Program. Christina Kim, Claire Na, and Amina Rafiqzada completed the four-month program with the guidance of an Ambassador mentor, and have joined the Ambassadors Committee.
“Ambassadors play an important role in engaging and acquainting newer Chamber members to the benefits of their membership,” said Vivian Atkinson, chair, Greater Irvine Chamber Ambassador Committee. “Ambassadors benefit from formal training; it sets a foundation for success by laying out clear expectations and helping Ambassadors in training to further develop their leadership skills, which they can apply in the business community on behalf of the Chamber.”
Ambassadors actively promote and represent the Greater Irvine Chamber in the business community, take the lead in welcoming new members to the Chamber, and help existing members remain active and involved.
Throughout the duration of the four-month program, Ambassadors in training are required to meet specified qualifications in order to acquaint them with the work and mission of the Greater Irvine Chamber. The qualifications include attending a set number of Chamber committee meetings, ribbon cutting ceremonies, and new member plaque deliveries.
