Member Ambassador Team

Making Connections

The Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC’s Ambassador Team is here to help you navigate your membership, explore networking and professional development opportunities, and make sure you enjoy your member-only perks, including exclusive advertising and exposure for your business.

Together, our ambassadors work to engage our members, foster positive business interactions and advance the economic vitality of the Pikes Peak region.


Our Ambassador Team is all about people. You see them all year long at our events – a group of familiar faces who are excited to meet you, connect you to other members, get you involved on important issues and all other things member related.

They frequently serve as your emcee at Chamber Connect events and share information all over social media about Chamber & EDC happenings, our economy and business environment.

Ambassadors are the primary advocates of the Chamber & EDC as they interact with members one-on-one. They are:

  • Positive
  • Inclusive
  • Engaged
  • Accountable

To fully engage our members and create positive business interactions, ambassadors represent and serve on the following industry teams:

  • Real Estate
  • Technology
  • Experience Economy
  • Insurance/Legal
  • Financial Services
  • Healthcare/Education

The Chamber & EDC’s Ambassador Team was founded in 1980 with a mission to recruit and onboard new members and support member engagement, retention and development.
