How do the Ambassador’s advance the community by supporting The Chamber in Hays, Kansas?

The Chamber Ambassadors are a group of 50 elected volunteers who make it their mission to attend as many Chamber events as possible throughout the year and learn what our businesses are providing, listen to their stories and share that information throughout our community while living their everyday lives.

This group of people represents over 41 businesses in the community. Collectively they have served over 400 years as Ambassadors representing our organization and they attend more than 120 hours of events every year. They are a priceless piece to the Chamber puzzle, allowing the Chamber staff to focus on additional projects while they assist with our number one priority —business prosperity for our members and in Hays. This group works very closely with the Chamber staff and reports directly to The Chamber Board of Directors.

You can recognize our Ambassadors at chamber events by their Ambassador nametag or chamber branded clothing.
