The Chamber Ambassadors act as representatives to the membership and community by communicating the positive benefits of the Chamber. They act as hosts of the Chamber's Annual Banquet - a celebration of Missoula business and a ceremony to honor the Chamber's leadership. The Ambassadors also visit local businesses and  participate in goodwill trips to fellow communities.
