GET ENGAGED WITH OUR COMMITTEES AND COUNCILS
Ambassador Program – Meets monthly – first Wednesdays at 12Noon at the Chamber
The Greater Fayetteville Chamber Ambassador program consists of enthusiastic Chamber volunteers who are the official “public relations” arm and welcoming committee of the Greater Fayetteville Chamber. Ambassadors ensure that our member’s needs, questions, and concerns are heard and addressed by the Chamber. The Ambassador program is also designed to involve and educate new and existing members.
Our Ambassadors play a vital role in member retention, recruitment, and communication and in doing so they grow professionally and personally by building business relationships within the community. Being an Ambassador provides extended business contacts through active association with other volunteers and members, professional and community recognition, enhanced credibility among peers as well as expanded communication and marketing skills. Ambassadors are interviewed prior to selection and must complete a training. Click HERE to apply or contact David@FayBiz.com for more information.
Membership – Meets monthly – schedule TBD
A new committee within the Chamber which reviews new members, prospects, overdue members and drops to try to find some remedy. Any new member benefits would also funnel through this committee. Contact David@FayBiz.com for more information.
Government Affairs – Meets monthly - second Wednesdays at 4PM at the Chamber
The Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee is the group which reviews legislation of importance to business at the local, regional state and federal level. The committee recommends position statements to the Chamber Board of Directors. Once adopted, the Chamber is then able to take positions on issues, issue press releases, give public comment, write letters, and otherwise engage to educate legislators, members, and the public about the legislation. The group also plans candidate forums, and other topics of legislative interest. Contact Jenny@FayBiz.com for more information.
Event committees focus on planning the Chamber’s signature events such as Bikes & BBQ, Martinis & Mistletoe, the Annual Awards Banquet, and other major happenings. They meet as needed for a concentrated time and end with a wrap-up evaluation meeting after the event. To work on an event, contact Kelly Moore, staff liaison, at Kelly@faybiz.com.
This group focuses on the development projects in Downtown Fayetteville, such as the new baseball stadium and the Prince Charles Hotel redevelopment. Subcommittees will work on best practices for communities with downtown ball parks, monitoring the City’s baseball committee meetings, and an action team to support businesses during construction.
