Ambassadors are a vital link to the community for the Chamber. They are in essence the public relations division of our chamber and
consist of business leaders from the community. These men and women represent the chamber at business and community events such as; festivals, ribbon cuttings, open houses, and Business After Hours.
They also serve as the volunteer force for a variety of Community events. Ambassadors welcome new businesses to Sycamore while acclimating them into the business community and serve as mentors throughout the year. These leaders create solidarity within the Chamber membership and help to bring about a greater appreciation among our citizens of what the Chamber stands for in terms of goodwill, civic participation, recognition and appreciation.
