The Ambassadors

Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce

Ambassador Meetings: The last Thursday of every month. Various locations.


by Ryan James, President, Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, 2018

The primary mission of the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce’s Ambassadors program is the retention of existing Kirkland Chamber Members, enlistment of new members, and to serve as goodwill representatives of the chamber at a variety of functions. This energetic group helps maintain contact with other Chamber members while promoting the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce and its purpose.

Ambassadors attend Chamber events and serve as greeters at Chamber functions such as monthly Business After Hours, Luncheons, Ribbon Cuttings and Grand Openings as well as other Chamber activities. Ambassadors are the first contact that new members have upon joining the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce.



The Kirkland Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome Kerry and Troy as the 2019 Ambassador Chairs.
