Ambassadors are the highly visible and well-recognized volunteer goodwill arm of GSI. They participate in all our events, help build connections between members, reach out to engage new members and support members with ribbon cuttings and grand openings, expansions and other celebrations. Ambassadors represent their business or organization in a professional, engaged manner in GSI and throughout the business community and often serve as the first point of contact for their company with new businesses, and businesses that are expanding, relocating, remodeling, and celebrating milestones – giving your organization the opportunity to build new relationships and potential new business.
If you are interested in participating as an ambassador with GSI, please contact Heather Hamlin at 509.321.3624
