"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time;
they just have the heart."
- Elizabeth Andrew
We’d love to have you consider becoming a Boaz Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador.
Here’s some information about our Awesome Ambassadors Program.
The Boaz Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are the welcoming arm for the Chamber: greeting new members, promoting Chamber programs, projects, and events, and serving the Board of Directors through volunteerism. Ambassadors establish, maintain, and improve the professional image of the Chamber to create goodwill and understanding among the members.
Code of Ethics
Chamber Ambassadors and Chamber Staff shall continually strive to achieve mutual respect in working relationships at all times. The primary goal is to serve Chamber members and businesses in a professional and positive environment. Ambassadors and staff shall be flexible, innovative and responsive to change. Teamwork, commitment and open communications are very important to the success of serving our Chamber members. All ambassadors, staff, directors and members are to be treated with dignity and respect and, most of all, should take pride in being a part of the Boaz Area Chamber of Commerce.
The success and reputation of the Boaz Area Chamber of Commerce is built upon the principles of fair dealing and ethical conduct of ambassadors, staff, and board members. Our reputation for integrity requires careful observance of the spirit and letter of all applicable laws and regulations, as well as a scrupulous regard for the highest standards of conduct and personal integrity.

Here's what some past Ambassadors have said about the program:
“I enjoy being an ambassador, it gives me the opportunity to stay connected with the people. When working in the community, you are Representing the community. You are the chamber, when people interact with you they see someone trying to make their experience at that moment a more personal one. In working with the public, you learn how to handle any situation with a smile, if you are trying to solve a problem and not creating a problem you will succeed, it might not always please both parties, but you do your best to find a solution and please all concerned. If participating in an Early Bird Breakfast or Ribbon Cutting. you are showing your support for that business. If we could get more people in our community to take an active role, we could be a closer-knit community and strive to work together for the betterment of Boaz.”
