Chamber Ambassadors


"I have been a part of the Ambassador council for nearly 7 years. In that time I have made numerous business contacts, great friends, and felt a better connection to the business community. I appreciate being involved in a small way with the economic development of this great city." - Luke Kersh, Consultant at The PEO Link, Inc.

Mission Statement

To enhance business growth and development of our members by the recruitment of new members and to represent the chamber as goodwill ambassadors. To increase the Chamber’s representation of the business community through recruitment of new members and retention of existing members. To be an advocate for members and the business community in building and sustaining a diverse and prosperous economy.

Scheduled Monthly Meetings: Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 11:45 a.m in the Boerne Chamber of Commerce conference room.



Ambassadors assist in maximizing Chamber benefits and support a diverse business community by offering a strong network of advocates and mentors. They welcome guests at all chamber functions (chamber luncheons and breakfasts, Business After Hours Mixers, and other special events) and take the lead at all chamber ribbon cuttings, Operation Thank You, groundbreakings and open houses.
