sponsored by

Lori Swihart, WSBT Radio Group
“I became an Ambassador to connect and build meaningful relationships with area business owners.  It’s exciting to introduce the WSBT Radio Group and help accelerate a client’s growth and success.  I enjoy meeting with the Ambassadors and attending the many events the Chamber plans for our community.  The positive feedback we hear from Members is rewarding!”

Hugh Johnson, J2 Marketing, LLC
“All good business is based on good relationships.  It is satisfying to help Chamber Members find the resources they need to grow to the next level.  These connections are valuable.  Networking done right creates mutually-affirming collaborations.”

Abby Miller, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott
“Being an Ambassador benefits the businesses I represent and me as a young professional.  I pursued my passion for hospitality management with a degree from Northern Michigan University. I love face-to-face interactions!  Networking continues to expand my knowledge of Elkhart, forming relationships and partnerships for success in our community.”

Tom Miller, Beacon Consulting
“As an Ambassador for the Chamber, I am given the opportunity to see and visit the companies conducting business in Elkhart. It is impressive to see what is going on in our local business community. Companies in our area are growing, thriving, and expanding. Networking and exchanging ideas – it’s all about being real, genuine and developing ongoing relationships.”
Bill Haughee, Blue Star IT Services & Solutions
“I find that serving as an Ambassador with the Chamber adds to my value because I discover really great local businesses and their employees.  With this knowledge, I am a more capable resource to my prospects, fellow employees and clients, as I am able to suggest who might bring a solution to a business challenge.”
Loretta Salchert, Ribbon of Hope
“Since joining the team nearly four years ago, I have made many new friends and enjoyed getting to know fellow employers and Chamber members. I appreciate the work of the Chamber. Serving alongside the staff as a member of the Ambassadors Council affords me the opportunity to better understand and appreciate the hardworking, creative, and generous employers of our community.”

Ryan Case, Perry Automotive
“I am proud to be part of an organization that cares about every member, with a goal to support our business.  Being an Ambassador allows me to meet local companies and place my business card directly in their hands.  Reaching out, connects – strengthens – and enhances Perry Automotive, the Chamber and the business community.”

Julie Vigue, Lachesis LLC
“Being an Ambassador truly opens the door to new opportunities and relationships that I would not have found on my own!  I’ve talked with area business owners to share the Lachesis story, and to understand the economic challenges that affect local business’ success.  That information is shared with the Chamber team and serves as the foundation for initiating positive change for the community.”

Michael Wolff, Life/Style Photography
“Chamber events are a great way to meet people. I enjoy visiting different businesses and connecting them with resources to assist their growth. Elkhart County has a thriving business community, and we’re excited to be a part of it.  Along with my career, traveling and scenic photography are among my favorite activities.”
John Snyder, Office 360  
 “I joined the Ambassador Council to create new networking opportunities, sharpen my own networking skills, and as a means to give back to the business community.  The Council has helped me succeed in all of those areas. The Chamber provides excellent social events and celebrations of business accomplishments.  Peer support and examples I’ve been able to draw from are top-notch!”
