Angela Baumesiter

Ambassador of the Year

Angela Baumeister of WCSJ/WJDK became a Chamber Ambassador seven years ago because she wanted to be more connected with the businesses in the area. It is important to her to make sure the work she does with the Chamber makes a difference in our community.


Congratulations and THANK YOU!

Grundy County Chamber Ambassador Club

One of the most active and visible committees within the Chamber, the Ambassador's Club is a group of active Chamber representatives dedicated to recruiting new members and helping existing ones maximize their membership benefits through volunteer, relationship building, and professional development opportunities.

As a vital part of Chamber public relations, Ambassadors volunteer their time to help ensure that Chamber events run smoothly and that the organization's membership remains strong and well informed. Ambassadors can usually be seen assisting at various Grundy County Chamber events such as Business After Hours, Golf Outings, Family Fest and Chamber Luncheons.

As some of the Chamber's top liaisons to membership, our Ambassadors play a vital role in member retention, recruitment, and communication. Each Ambassador has made a commitment to addressing member needs through information and support, and to ensuring that questions or concerns are heard by the Grundy County Chamber Staff and Board.

The efforts of the Ambassadors help to keep the Chamber in tune with its membership. Through member feedback, the Ambassadors help shape the type of programs and services provided by the Chamber.

Participation as an Ambassador provides the volunteer with extended business contacts through active association with other volunteers and members, professional and community recognition for both the volunteer and their business, as well as expanded communication and marketing skills.

The Ambassador's Club meets regularly on the second Friday of every month at 11:30 a.m.
