The Ambassadors are a supportive group of the Newport Chamber of Commerce, comprised of knowledgeable and friendly business owners, community members, and retirees. We like to call ourselves the ‘busy bodies of the business realm'….and we mean that in the very best of ways! The Ambassadors are here to support local Chamber businesses through a number of means, whether it be showcases, ribbon cuttings, luncheons, business after hours, bazaars, referrals, or volunteering for community events.

The mission of the Ambassadors is to assist in recruiting, welcoming and supporting new and existing members through participation in and promotion of the Newport Chamber of Commerce.

For more information on joining the Ambassadors, or to schedule an event, contact or call the Chamber at 541-265-8801. Also visit our Facebook page.
