Committees

Ambassadors Committee

Members of the Ambassadors Committee volunteer their time throughout the year as goodwill ambassadors for the Springfield Regional Chamber. Ambassadors partner with Chamber members on an ongoing basis as new members join the Chamber to ensure that the Chamber is meeting the needs of all its members.

As well, ambassadors organize and participate in the monthly After 5 and Business@Breakfast events. The Business@Breakfast events pay tribute to individuals, business firms and organizations for their major contributions to civic and economic growth, and for actions which reflect honor on the Greater Springfield region. After 5 events offer an oportuntiy to network in a casual, after-hours atmosphere.  Both events provides increased marketing exposure to member businesses through sponsorship or networking at the event.

Committee members meet throughout the year on the second Wednesday of each month. Ambassadors must be members of the Springfield Regional Chamber.  For information on the Ambassadors Committee, contact Jeff Lomma at (413) 755-1313 or lomma@springfieldregionalchamber.com.
