Why do you serve as an Ambassador?

I enjoy serving as an Ambassador for the Terre Haute Chamber because I enjoy being part of our community and growth.  It allows me the opportunity to meet business individuals and develop relationships.  I also see myself not just an Ambassador for the Chamber but for my hotels.  The more I can promote my hotels, the more I am promoting our community.  Together we create a positive experience for our businesses and their visitors.

Thank you Suzie for serving as an Ambassador through your commitment and dedication to the Chamber!
