The Ambassadors are a prestigious group of Chamber members who represent MACC and support the economic growth and development of the Mid-Ohio Valley. Ambassadors serve as key liaisons between the Chamber and the business community by being our “eyes and ears.” They work to increase membership, improve member retention, strengthen awareness of chamber benefits and assist with MACC events. Being an Ambassador not only helps us, but helps each Ambassador get to know area business leaders and better understand their community.
How to Join
Ambassadors are selected from interested personnel either employed by or retired from Marietta Area Chamber of Commerce member businesses. When electing new members, consideration is given to visibility in the community, community interests, and a willingness to support Chamber and Ambassadors activities. Check out the guidelines HERE.

Meetings are held the third Monday of each month. These meetings begin at 10:45 am and are followed by visits to local businesses. Quarterly Meetings are also held the third Monday of the following months: March, June, September, and December. For those particular months, Out of Town Visits are scheduled to be leaving from the Chamber at 8:30 a.m. Ambassadors are requested to wear a navy blue blazer or a navy blue polo shirt and their name plate, which should be worn at all meetings and functions when members are representing the Chamber as an Ambassador.
The annual fee is $25.00. Funds collected offset the cost of plaques and other specific Ambassador materials. Ambassadors also are expected to provide their own appropriate classic navy blue blazer and attire.
