• Ambassadors Council

  • The Chamber's Diplomats serve as the "customer service" arm of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors' Center.  Diplomats serve as liaisons between Chamber staff, board members, and our membership and keep our members informed of upcoming special events and programs and also solicit feedback from our members regarding current issues. 

    The Diplomats consists of volunteers from Chamber businesses who stay in touch with current members.  When an opportunity arises they will also recruit new Chamber members.  They represent the Chamber at all sponsored functions and work to develop an on-going retention program.  Diplomats also hand deliver most of our plaques and door decals annually to our renewing members. 

    The Diplomats meet on a monthly basis (1st Tuesday of each month at 8:30 a.m.) at the Chamber.  Their meetings are organized around current Chamber activities.  Each Diplomat receives an official "Chamber Ambassador" name badge which should be worn to all Chamber functions.  Council members are required to sign an annual contract and are evaluated by a point system.  At the end of each year, points are tabulated according to the attendance and involvement and an Ambassador of the Year is awarded at the Chamber's Annual Banquet in May of each year. 

    The Chamber's Diplomtas are vitally important to the mission of the Chamber as they help to build relationships with our members.  For more information, please contact Dianne Byrd at (803) 432-2525, or via email at dbyrd@kershawcountychamber.org
