Chamber Ambassadors

The Bemidji Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are the welcoming force for new businesses, owners and managers, and businesses with recent expansions, remodels or new locations in the Bemidji area. 

How it works

Our Ambassadors keep an eye out for new businesses, relocations or expansions and will attempt to reach out and set up a visit. New businesses, owners or managers are also welcome to contact the Chamber or an Ambassador and request a visit or ribbon cutting. 

During the visit, Ambassadors donning plaid vests, along with Chamber staff and members of our Board of Directors will stop by for congratulations and a welcome to the business community. A plaque will be presented to the business or new owners, general managers or directors. 

If your business/organization is new, we’ll take out the giant scissors and cut the plaid ribbon while presenting the plaque. A photo or video will be posted on the Chamber’s social media pages and also sent to the Bemidji Pioneer for publication.
