    Are you proud to call Greater Vernon home? Do you sing the region's praises when speaking to colleagues from across Canada or around the world?

    There is an opportunity for business leaders in our community to become ambassadors and help promote Greater Vernon as the place to live, work and invest. Your role as ambassador may involve mentoring new business owners in the community, introducing them to key individuals and helping them navigate challenges that may arise. And ambassadors can also help make contacts aware of the economic and lifestyle opportunities that exist in the North Okanagan.

    If you are interested in becoming a Business Ambassador, please contact the Chamber office.
