• Ambassadors


  • Chamber Ambassadors, affectionately known as “Red Coats” for their uniform red blazers, are an integral part of the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.  Since the Ambassador program's inception in 1985, GVCC Red Coats have served as the mainstay of Chamber volunteers, juggling busy professional careers while also making time to regularly assist the Chamber.

    Ambassadors serve as the welcoming committee for new members, a link to existing members, and a conduit those seeking membership.Their responsibilities include meeting and greeting at Chamber events, familiarizing and transitioning new members, and assisting at ribbon cuttings and member events. 

    The Chamber salutes our much-appreciated Ambassadors!
