Congratulations to Tim Hogeland, who has been named the Chamber’s 2011 Ambassador of the Year. Tim began volunteering as an Ambassador in December 2009, attending networking functions and volunteering at Chamber programs. Tim has also recently referred several potential members to join the Chamber.
Tim said, “It's a great honor to be named Ambassador of the Year. I truly enjoy working with the membership department of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce and all of my fellow Ambassadors.” He added, “The Ambassadors are a fun group to work with and they are all invested in helping members succeed in the local business marketplace.”
In addition to attending monthly events, Tim goes out of his way to make new members feel comfortable and appreciated. Tim says he finds it rewarding to represent the Chamber at ribbon cuttings and volunteer at events. He was named Ambassador of the Quarter twice in 2011. Tim is an Account Executive with Rocket Direct Communications, Inc.
The Ambassador Committee is a diverse group of 15 volunteers who are dedicated to making a difference for the Chamber and within the community. Ambassadors are liaisons between the Chamber and new and existing members.
