About Us
Welcome to Sault Area Chamber

AMBASSADOR Representatives

For decades, the Ambassadors Club has attended chamber functions, welcomed new businesses into the area, greeted visiting dignitaries, celebrated growth and improvement in the area and assisted directly in helping the chamber and other area events run smoothly.

Ribbon Cuttings

Helping to promote business is what a Chamber of Commerce is all about and the Ambassadors Club assists the Chamber by helping with ribbon cutting events. Anytime a new business opens, expands, moves to a new location or celebrates a significant event, the Ambassadors are happy to be on hand with the ribbon and scissors!

Join the Ambassadors!

We are looking for motivated, friendly and outgoing members who enjoy assisting fellow members. The Ambassadors is both a club, and a standing committee of the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce. Our stated purpose is to “exemplify the hospitality of the area” and any and all functions related to that purpose including, but not limited to, acting as hosts for functions with this area and greeting visiting personalities and groups.
