Chamber Welcomes New Ambassadors
An ambassador’s job is to be a representative and a surrogate, which define the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce ambassadors. They are very recognizable, always sporting their green blazers as a sign of prosperity for the business community. They also attend almost every chamber event, recently attending an awards ceremony reflecting the fourth quarter of 2019. The individuals earn points by attending events, and when a certain number has been reached, they are awarded an official chamber ambassador name badge. Which they wear with their green blazers. Paula Avery (Colson Printing Company), Desiree Hagan (Winnersville Elite Cheer & Dance), Cherise McKinnon (Sip With Cherise), Brittany Ray (Coastal Home Care, LLC) and Michael Smith (Greater Valdosta United Way, Inc.) reached this status in the fourth quarter. The chamber chairman of the board (Lee McArthur), awarded those present with their badges. The ambassadors spend a great deal of time together, and are happy to learn from each other through internal networking at each event.
