Ambassadors are the public relations arm of the Chamber membership. They make members feel welcome, give the Chamber recognition at public gatherings, greet new businesses into the community, promote the Chamber’s interests and goals, and get people involved in Chamber functions. In short, they do those things which may come under the general heading of “Public Relations”.

Chamber Ambassadors represent and communicate the Chamber’s mission and provide networking opportunities for business people. If you would like to join this prestigious, energetic group – please call Maureen Rowe, Membership Director at (925) 837-4400 or drop her an email at
