Ambassador Committee

CCSNJ's Ambassador Committee plays an important role in attracting and retaining Chamber members. Ambassadors supplement the Chamber staff's efforts in outreach to new members, to ensure that all members feel welcomed at Chamber events, and to educate members on how to maximize their memberships.

People First
"Great networking is relationship building. It requires care, connection, and consistency. Each interaction is an opportunity to connect with and be of service to others and to build your personal and professional brand. Ask questions, be genuine, be willing to be human, and remember that each one of us was the new person in the room (virtual or otherwise) at one time! "

Ambassador Tip

"Never walk into an event loud and acting like you own the place. Walk in quietly but confidently and know you own the place. It's great if people say about you, "Do you know such and such" but it's better when they say "You need to know such and such." This isn't a High School, and this isn't a popularity contest this is the business world and if you're sincere it will be appreciated."

" I believe  every person has value & a story to tell. Deep listening and in person meeting is the best way to begin any relationship. I've never met anyone who doesn't want to feel part of something bigger than themselves. I believe we all have much to share with one another & collaboration rather than competition , fosters a win, win,win outcome. "

R-Horner-HS

Ambassador Tip

I have been a member of this Chamber for 25 years. It is the single most important resource I have for developing new clients in my business. The way it can become that for your business is by taking the time to develop connections here. Go to as many events as you can. I typically attend at least 1 per week. Don’t try to pick what you think will be a good event. They are all potentially events where you might meet your next best client."

Ambassador Tip

If you have the attitude “Service to others without expectations”, you will have a long and successful career. Be the partner that is always connecting and making the introductions. Networking is all about creating relationships and how to be a resource. Not everyone will be the right fit for what you do, but if you bring value to the table, they will find someone to introduce you to. As an Ambassador of CCSNJ, I hope to make the introductions to help grow your successful network. ABC= Always Be Connecting.

Ambassador Tip

"Personally and professionally, we are all part of group emails, texts, and chats and sometimes our replies are just intended for the primary sender. Please take the extra few moments to reply back to just that person and read your response just one more time before you hit send. The other recipients may not want multiple replies inundating their inbox and replies that are just meant for the sender can go out to "all" and could cause problems down the road. Even worse, they could be re-posted, re-tweeted on social media without any context or rebuttal. Once something is out there, it is out there! So next "reply"; think, respond, review and send it only to those who you want to read it."

Attend events, virtual or in person, with the intention to meet people and learn something interesting about them. If you feel nervous, take a deep breath and remember that others are probably feeling the same way. Look for an ambassador or a friendly CCSNJ staff member and we will be happy to introduce you to a few people.

Ambassador Tip

"The Chamber is a great tool for expanding your reach and building valuable relationships. But like any other tool, it’s how we use it that makes the difference. Be genuine and present when you approach others. Take more time learning about the needs of others rather than sharing yours. Relationships are far more valuable than “contacts” however, they take time and effort to build. Although we are members of the Chamber for the purpose of advancing our business, it is the personal connections that bring the greatest gratification and professional growth. "

Ambassador Tip

“At most Chamber events, attendees have an opportunity to stand up and introduce themselves and their business to the group. Make sure you practice your 15 second commercial before the meeting so the group can get a good understanding of the services that you provide and the types of clients that you are looking for!"
