I believe that business development is vitally important to our region, and to all businesses in it. I enjoy seeing the happy look on the faces of business owners & their staff, when they have seen me and other Ambassadors attend their ribbon cuttings, open houses, and even see me and other Ambassadors return again at a later time to purchases goods and services from them. They have the look of feeling supported by my and the Ambassadors’ taking the time to see them, talk to them, network with them, care about them. Shirley Chisholm said that volunteering our time and service is the rent we pay for living on this Earth. I believe that. Volunteering for the Chamber helps me personally by rendering a warm, feel-good inside, knowing that I am helping someone else, ‘paying my rent’. Volunteering has helped me professionally"
Century Products LLC
Executive Corporate Officer
"The Chamber has introduced me to the city of Greensboro. When I moved here in 2010 my primary focus was work and our work is nationally focused. I saw the Chamber as a way to first learn more about my local community while meeting my neighbors and helping to build up the place I call home. The importance of community was instilled in me at a young age so giving back is just a way of life."
"As a Chamber Ambassador since 2002, I feel very fortunate and proud to be a part of this organization. The Chamber has really helped our business grow and become more successful over the years by providing great educational programs and networking events. But the best part of being an ambassador, it allows me the opportunity to give a little back and help new members become successful and grow their businesses."
