EMBDC Ambassadors are employees of our member companies and serve as our goodwill representatives. They attend our events and programs, often serving as hosts and hostesses, and are the public relations arm of the EMBDC. Ambassadors meet monthly and are routinely recognized for their many contributions to our organization. For more information on joining this great group of volunteers, please contact us at (601) 693-1306 or
