Chamber Ambassadors

Graham Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors

The Graham Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are the official hosts for the Chamber of Commerce and carry out the activities which improve the membership, prestige, and public image of the Chamber of Commerce.

The Graham Ambassadors Club was organized in January 1970 by the Graham Chamber of Commerce to serve as a welcoming committee for visiting dignitaries in Graham and to assist with Chamber events. Membership was set at 25 maximum members. Dues were $10 a year with each member responsible for furnishing their own red coats.

The original members of the first Graham Ambassadors Club was: front row, L-R: Glen Ragle, Beverly King, E.R. Marchman, Ed Salter, Louis Pitcock, Norman Evans, Jim Jones, John Killough, Zack Burkett; back row: Ed Harris, Jr., Eugene McCracken, Bert Mann, Lynn Loftin, Dennis Newton, Larry Willard, Ray Herring, and Guy Meacham.

You can easily spot Chamber Ambassadors at events and functions based on their red shirt or jacket. It is an honor to be selected to serve as an Ambassador due to the important role Ambassadors play in the continued success of our local economy and the Chamber.
