Chamber Ambassadors

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are a group of professional volunteers from local businesses and various backgrounds that serve as the public relations arm of the Chamber, aiding in welcoming new businesses to the area and new members. They can be recognized by their green jackets which symbolize prosperity, something they wish for every business in the community.

Ambassadors are highly visible by welcoming new members, making goodwill calls, assisting with ribbon cuttings, groundbreakings, leading business of the week, and other member events and Chamber functions throughout the year.

Mission Statement

To serve as goodwill ambassadors for the Chamber to the community-at-large with the highest degree of professionalism, knowledge, and integrity. Also, promote the development of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber by assisting with its events.


You and your company will be visible at Chamber-related functions and eligible for the Ambassador of the Year Award presented at the Chamber Annual Meeting.
Build and advance effective, relevant, and professional programs and networking opportunities for Ambassador Members.
