Ambassador Committee

Co-Chairs Martha Schultz and David Janes

The Ambassador Committee is a group of men and women who represent the Growth Association as a public relations body. The main focus of this committee is to aid the Growth Association in maintaining our visibility in the community. The Ambassador committee provides this visibility by generously volunteering their time to attend our ribbon cuttings, ground breakings, open houses, and Business After Hours. They volunteer to work at our special events which are the Duck Race, Annual Dinner, RiverBend Golf Classic, State of the RiverBend Luncheon and the Women’s Seminar. This committee also assists the Membership Committee in the recruitment and retention of the membership. 

This committee meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 11:30am or 3:30pm.
