Here are a few important notes about participating as an Ambassador:

Committing your time:

As an Ambassador, you are expected to make time to attend a 1-hour monthly meeting that will focus on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, organizational updates, and getting to know your fellow Ambassadors.

Aside from the monthly meeting, our Ambassadors are strongly encouraged to attend any ribbon cuttings, grand openings, ground breakings, or other business celebrations for the many active members of One Acadiana.

Being present for a major milestone in the life of a business is a special opportunity and a rewarding aspect of being an Ambassador.

I have been an active member and Ambassador of One Acadiana for over 25 years. Being an Ambassador has afforded me so many opportunities to be engaged in conversations, create lasting connections, and gain knowledge of the issues affecting our community. I am proud to be a member and Ambassador of One Acadiana – a great organization that is committed to making Acadiana the best in the South!
