Become an Erie Ambassador

Erie Ambassadors serve the community through volunteer activities that positively impact the community and support the mission of the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership. The Erie Ambassador program is designed to train community professionals and citizens interested in the history and promotion of our region. The course examines numerous aspects of the community, providing in-depth information from some of Erie’s top civic leaders.

Erie Ambassador Graduates are welcome to attend a current session, if it was not offered or if they missed that session during their enrollment period. A continuing education session will be attempted at least once a year.
