Elizabeth Warren an Ambassador at the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce
At Otter Creek Awnings most all of us volunteer or belong to one or several organizations. Elizabeth Warren, co owner of Otter Creek, volunteers for the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce (LCRCC) as an Ambassador. Otter Creek has been a member of the organization for years and Elizabeth has been on the Ambassador Committee for more than three years.
What is the role of an Ambassador? Elizabeth explains, “Well, our main job is to help host the monthly Business After Hours Events. We try and visit as many folks as possible and make as many introductions as we can. You might also see us at the door greeting and giving out those drink tickets or selling raffle tickets for the 50/50. Another aspect of our volunteer job is to call new members of the Chamber to welcome them, answer questions, and invite them to an event. Many of us also support events with social media, especially Facebook and Twitter.”
In the spring the Ambassador Committee helps to plan and organize one of the Chamber’s largest fundraisers of the year; the Annual Ambassadors Silent Auction. Committee members help by obtaining items, setting up for and working the event. “The Silent Auction is a huge event, a lot of fun, and the highlight of the year,” says Elizabeth.
The Chamber is just one of many professional organizations that Elizabeth is involved with but it is one of her favorites. “Working with a terrific group of professionals who are committed to the Chamber makes for a very rewarding volunteer experience,” she explains.
