    I am a firm believer in community involvement and development. What better way to achieve this than through the Chambers Ambassador Program? It allows me to go out and meet with various members within our business community and communicate the Chambers mission and goals. I receive feedback from members, good & bad, and I relay that back to the Chamber to ensure that members needs are met and concerns are addressed. The Ambassador Program also provides me with the opportunity to introduce myself and the business I represent. I am grateful for the business connections that the program has provided, enabling me to serve my customers in a more conducive manner. For more information please contact Kathy Wiggins, Wardens Office Products at (209) 529-6321. P
