Ambassador's Program

The Chamber has a brand new agenda; a new way of networking for our members! The program is our "Ambassadors Program." The Ambassadors Program exists to develop and nurture relationships among members while increasing the exposure for the Chamber’s business community. Ambassadors get the opportunity of developing new contacts which will increase their community wide recognition.
 

A few of the many benefits of becoming an Ambassador are listed below:

1. Deeper relationship with other Chamber members

2. Leadership role within our business community

3. Recognition at Chamber events

4. Increased referral opportunities through other Ambassadors and one-to-one contact with other members

As a banker, I am basically a financial solutions provider, and a resource for supporting the needs of my customers and members. In doing so, I am very comfortable in also being a resource in providing members of the chamber with answers to their questions, guidance to their inquiries, and referrals of other chamber members in supporting their needs in order to grow their business or their professional circle.

As a former business member, board member and committee chairman for the Crestview chamber, he understands the value of the Chamber of Commerce and the importance of businesses’ involvement in its programs.

Tiffany is interested in meeting local entrepreneurs and finds the Chelsea Chamber to be an excellent resource.
She is an Ambassador because she is interested in growing the Chamber to help local entrepreneurs work together to succeed.
I am an ambassador because I love my job of being in NYC pest control, and we do so many businesses and residents in the GVCCC footprint! I love helping people and solving problems, and being an ambassador helps me connect people to the Chamber and to my humanitarian efforts to make our city more livable! More people should be involved with the Chamber and become ambassadors as well.

The Chamber is well run and the events schedule is broad and comprehensive. The team does a fantastic job in our community to raise the awareness and promote the Chamber members and their respective businesses. Being part of the community and getting to know each other is a critical step in developing this understanding that the Chamber creates value around for the membership. I really enjoy meeting other members at the events and have found some great partners through the chamber event schedule.

I am a recent member to the Chamber having joined a little less than a year ago. As a local business owner operating an Acupuncture practice in the West Village, my experience has been quite positive and I have been impressed with the Chamber's overall organization and actions which benefit the membership, particularly on the legislative front. When I find an organization I respect, I believe in spreading the word. This is the primary reason I decided to become a Chamber Ambassador. It provides me with a platform to share the benefits of this organization with others, and of course interacting with a greater number of businesses also benefits my business.

"An 'ambassador' is a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity and I am extremely proud to be one for the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber helps its members and the neighborhoods they are in survive in these rough times. It is great that the Chamber serves as a Networking and Lobbying platform. Small Businesses need all of the help that we can get and I am pleased to offer my 40+ years of business experience to the GVCCC and our membership."
I have very close ties to downtown Manhattan; I was raised here and in the 80s my parents opened Il Mulino restaurant in Greenwich Village. I've been fortunate to witness the economic growth of our neighborhoods, due in part to independent businesses like theirs. For that reason, supporting all types of local business is something that has always been extremely important to me. Large organizations and small businesses, within a community, can coexist by becoming cross-reliant and I believe the Ambassador Program can help foster those relationships.
I - David Wise - Territory Manager At ADT LLC am an Ambassador in order to promote and grow the Membership of the Greenwich Village / Chelsea Chamber Of Commerce.
In bringing Small and Medium sized businesses and their owners in as new members into the Chamber - I am giving them a platform where they have access to local and state
Government and their leaders.. This gives them the opportunity to influence future
Legislation that will be favorable to them and help them grow their business.

Also - Membership in the GVCCC offers them the opportunity to network with businesses
Of all types which could increase their customer base and bring in additional sales revenue; which could result in higher profit margins for them.

The GVCCC is an extremely useful organization to join. The team is proactive in making referrals, has created business contacts, and real business for my company. For a nominal annual fee, our company has been introduced to various other companies and has gained the support of a great organization. Thanks GVCCC!
