Promoting and enhancing good relations between the farm & energy industries and the community is this committee’s main goal. This committee is vital to our chamber as they help us keep in tune with the two largest industries in North Dakota. The committee is involved in hosting the Farmer’s Appreciation Banquet, the Ag Energy Luncheon, the 4-H Breakfast, farm tours, and other ag and energy related events. They meet the first Friday of each month at 8:15 am.
This committee is known as the “public relations” arm of the Chamber and is comprised of friendly, outgoing people whose main responsibility is to get to know the members of the Chamber, and spread the good news of the work that the Chamber is doing. Ambassadors are involved in a lot of events including ribbon cuttings, customer service award presentations, business of the month award presentations, Business After Hours events, monthly and random member visits and more! They meet the first Thursday each month at noon.
Individuals involved in this committee strive for a clean and attractive community throughout the year. The committee is involved in tree plantings, coordinating city-wide cleanup efforts, the Sensory Garden, as well as working with community service groups on community mowing and cleanup.
