The primary mission of The (DBA) Downtown Business Association’s Ambassadors program is the retention of existing DBA Members, enlistment of new members, and to serve as goodwill representatives of the association at a variety of functions. This energetic group helps maintain contact with other Chamber / Association members while promoting the DBA and its purpose. Ambassadors attend association functions and serve as “meeters” and greeters at association events such as monthly Business After Hours, Coffee Clubs, ribbon cuttings and grand openings, and other association events (i.e. Expo’s, membership luncheons, etc.). Ambassadors are the first contact that members have upon joining (DBA) Downtown Business Association’s events.
What are ambassador benefits?
(DBA) Downtown Business Association’s develop new business contacts in the Downtown area while increasing the community-wide recognition for themselves and their companies. Ambassadors learn new skills by working side by side with other talented professionals who work within (DBA) Downtown Business Association’s Area. Monthly Ambassadors of the Month and annually Ambassadors of the Year are profiled on the Ambassador plaque that is displayed in the DBA office (starting in 2018). Ambassadors receive recognition at DBA Networking events and Annual Dinner. Ambassadors of the Month receive complimentary admission to the DBA events. Additionally, Ambassadors attending ribbon cutting receive recognition within the monthly DBA Business newsletter.
