EMBDC Ambassadors are a group of motivated, enthusiastic and articulate men and women who serve as an integral part of the EMBDC's community and economic development programs.
Ambassadors accumulate points by volunteering their time to attend EMBDC functions like ribbon- cuttings and Business After Hours receptions, and by hosting programs. They also recruit new members and assist with retention of current members.
