Volunteers are the lifeblood of any non-profit organization.  For the Portage County Business Council (PCBC), the most active and enthusiastic volunteers are the Ambassadors Club, which currently consists of 25 individuals from around our community.  Last year alone, the entire Club gave back over 1,600 hours of volunteer time just for the PCBC and its members!

Members of the Ambassadors Club show their support by attending business events such as ribbon cuttings, grand openings, ground breaking ceremonies, and Business After Hours, tours with new and existing businesses, monthly strategy meetings, and various other volunteer activities.  Chances are if you are engaged in the business community, you have seen them.

To learn more about joining the Ambassadors Club of the PCBC or bringing them to your business for a function, please contact Karen Myers, Director of Programs & Events at 715-344-1940 or kmyers@portagecountybiz.com.  Your PCBC membership must be in good standing with the Portage County Business Council to be eligible.
