Volunteering as an Ambassador for the Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce is a great way to support and connect with the business community, and promote Chamber membership. The Chamber employs a staff of 3 people, making our Ambassadors and volunteers valuable assets when providing outreach to the local business community.

Our Ambassador team works with the Chamber staff behind the scenes to actively advocate for the Chamber, help educate, promote and share the benefits of membership and help in member recruitment. They help in a variety of capacities; helping at events, greeting and facilitating networking with guests, essentially becoming community leaders who advocate for area growth and economic development while supporting local businesses. There are many benefits to becoming an ambassador including many opportunities to make valuable contacts with business leaders throughout the Lewis County Area.

We are so grateful to our 2022 Ambassadors and all the support they have given to us this year and we are looking forward to a great 2023! From Ribbon Cuttings, Forums, Business After Hours and our many other community events, we could not have done it all without our Ambassadors!

The latest survey was sent out to the 20th Legislative District in late-January and the responses are still coming. To date, here are some of those results from the over 400 responses.
