Ambassadors are vital to the Economic Alliance's success! Ambassadors welcome new members, staff monthly BizMix events, a monthly networking event, attend ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings, and help educate the community on EA initiatives and opportunities to get involved. Being an Ambassador provides exclusive access to the business community and high level connections. Employees of Economic Alliance member businesses are eligible to become an Ambassador.
How to Become an Ambassador
Ambassador applications open twice per year, in March and September. Any employee of a current Economic Alliance member business is encouraged to apply. Applicants are asked to submit a completed application form, signed Ambassador Handbook, resume, brief bio and three references. Applications will be reviewed by the Ambassador Executive Committee. Once selected, Ambassadors attend orientation to learn about the Economic Alliance, the role of Ambassadors and requirements of the program. If you have any questions, reach out to to using the contact form.
