On Thursday, October 10th, attendees gathered at the YTEL building in Lake Forest for our final Tri-Chamber Mixer. This mixer was hosted by the Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce.
As attendees came through the front doors, they were warmly greeted by all three Chambers (Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, and RSM) and kindly directed to first take a fun photo with Takata Photo & Design and then make their way to the meet n greet areas where the food, beverages, opportunity drawing prizes, and Chamber tables were located.
It was so refreshing observing the three Chambers interacting and sharing contact information to be used at a later time. The City Mayors were also on hand to support this special event, along with Board members and Ambassadors from each Chamber.

We look forward to announcing our 2020 Tri-Chamber Mixers in the very near future!
The first two rapid new member welcomes (within 24-hrs) by Chamber Ambassador, Rochelle Chacon (Business Group Resources) were just a fluke - or were they?

We thank you again Rochelle for taking your member assignments seriously and for helping our members, both new and existing, feel welcome and that their business is important to our community!

Yesterday late afternoon, we welcomed our newest members, George and Kathie Bloomfield (Bloomfield Group), to the Chamber! Last evening, George and Kathie were assigned to Chamber Ambassador, Rochelle Chacon (Business Group Resources).
Fast-forward to this morning, 11:42 am, Rochelle meets with George to welcome them to the Chamber and takes a brief view, as seen below. Now this is the kind of "warm and speedy" welcome that our new members not only deserve, but truly appreciate!
Please enjoy this introductory video featuring George Bloomfield.
The crowds gathered on Thursday, September 26th, at 4pm. Both the Lake Forest and Mission Viejo Chambers, along with family and friends, and City, State, and Federal governmental representatives, came out to witness and support the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of ADIO Chiropractic.
After an enjoyable office tour, enjoying various foods, and collecting our raffle tickets, all attendees gathered for both Chamber Ribbon Cuttings, as the governmental representatives each presented their welcome certificates to the Cadman family, owners of ADIO Chiropractic. At the conclusion of the Ribbon Cuttings, raffles were conducted and several deserving members received their gifts.
Once again, both the Lake Forest and Mission Viejo Chambers wholeheartedly welcome ADIO Chiropractic to their business communities!

In March 2019, we had 14 Mission Viejo Chamber Ambassadors and each of them were assigned a minimum of 10-15 fellow Chamber members. It became increasingly challenging to keep up with one's assigned members.
So the call went out at a Daybreakers Networking Breakfast: "We are looking for a few more to volunteer their time as Chamber Ambassadors. Can you reach out for this esteemed privilege"? Within a few days, there were four (4) members that answered that call to join our Ambassador Committee.
Over the next several months to date, many more have "taken up the call" and are volunteering their efforts to serve their fellow Chamber members (thus reducing the number of assigned members per Ambassador). We now have 30 Ambassadors!
Chamber Ambassadors have the privilege in taking the lead to set up one-to-one appointments with their assigned members, provide them timely reminders of upcoming key events and networking opportunities (which can assist them to build closer relationships with other business owners and gain greater exposure for their own businesses), help them become familiar and proficient with the powerful website marketing tools that are available, and become a valuable referral source to each other.
We now take this time to welcome our two (2) newest Ambassadors, Caleb Ward (Modern Woodmen of America) and Kristen Frey (PKSA Karate MV)! For a complete list of the Ambassador Committee, please click here: www.missionviejochamber.com/committees.html.
We encourage the general Chamber membership to really embrace your assigned Ambassador and thoroughly benefit from their volunteer spirit and enthusiasm! If you have any comments or questions regarding the Ambassador program, please send an email to our Ambassador Committee Chair, John Rodriguez (iFinance Mortgage), at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Mission Viejo Chamber Ambassadors for your good work - you are indeed on FIRE!
