    Chamber Ambassador Chair, Mia Mothershed, Marketing Director at Jackson Hospital, has been involved with the Chamber Ambassador program for more than five years, and in 2018, she’s spearheading the Ambassador team, ensuring the group of volunteers continues to do its great work supporting other Chamber members and area businesses. She shared a bit about the program and why she believes it’s an integral piece of the Chamber’s mission.

    How long have you been involved with the Chamber as an Ambassador?
    It was so long ago that I can’t pinpoint the year. I started volunteering with other campaigns, and becoming an Ambassador was a natural progression. I can say, it has been more than five years.

    Please explain who Ambassadors are and what they do.
    Chamber Ambassadors are volunteers who give their time and service to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce. We participate in monthly events promoting the Chamber’s mission, representing our companies, who are also members of the Chamber, and offer support to many area businesses.

    What is the mission of the Ambassador program?
    The mission of every Ambassador is to enlighten others about the Chamber’s mission, which is to stay committed to exceptional service, work to improve the economic well-being of the business community and enhance the quality of life of the area through the creation and preservation of jobs. I like to say that the Ambassadors help bring to life the words of the Chamber’s dynamic mission statement.

    What will your role as Chair entail and what do you hope to accomplish?
    As this year’s Chair, my role will be what I aspire to accomplish daily: to engage, enlighten and empower others. Each Ambassador already has a heart for the Chamber’s mission; it is my hope to use those three tools to add more fruitful branches in the River Region.

    How does the local business community benefit from what Chamber Ambassadors do?
    The Ambassadors walk out the Chamber mission in everything that we do. We are invested in the River Region. Whether shopping locally or dining out, we are always open to connecting businesses to each other and possible customers. We are walking billboards for the local business community.

    How do Ambassadors benefit from the program and their involvement?
    The Ambassadors have an opportunity to not only represent and promote the Chamber, but to meet and engage with other members, elected officials and key business stakeholders and promote their own business at various Chamber events.

    What one thing would you like MBJ readers to know about Chamber Ambassadors?
    Chamber Ambassadors are a select group of approximately 75 business men and women who work for Chamber member organizations, believe in the Chamber’s mission and support their Community.

    What is your favorite part of being an Ambassador?
    I love the look on a new business owner’s face when they become a Chamber member, and they realize the support that comes with their membership. It is like they have been given the keys to success. Ribbon cuttings, networking events, training seminars and webinars, it just goes on and on.
