We represent Chamber members to encourage and support the growth of McLean County business.


What We Do:

Ambassadors are a group of volunteers who help create a positive image of the Chamber. They are the conduit of influence who provide valuable feedback to Chamber staff and knowledge to our members as active listeners, participants, and business advocates. They are present at every Chamber event to help circulate, greet, and welcome new Chamber members to help establish new relationships throughout our community. Ambassadors also reap the rewards of making new contacts, strengthening relationships and have access to a wealth of information and community resources throughout the Chamber.


For more information on the Ambassadors please contact Wendy Olson at 309-829-1187.
