Casper Chamber Members, in their own words, on the value of Committee Involvement
"I wanted to be a part of the community more and support our local businesses and entrepreneurs. I wanted to help make a difference in our community. Being a member has benefited our business due to networking and helping to support our community. It also has allowed us to be educated on what is happening in the state so we are more knowledgeable/prepared for our future. In addition, it let’s us help play a role in the future of Casper. By far the best thing is getting to meet soooooooooo many people that I would have never engaged with . From meeting Oil and Gas Professionals to the owner of the mom and pop shop, you get to really know the people that make our community great. I would say give a shot. You will make great friends and really solidify your role and leadership in Casper."

"I have always enjoyed attending Business Expos and After-Hours. In 2015 I began talking to the former business development coordinator, and she invited me to the next meeting. By becoming an Ambassador I have been able to see businesses grow in our market. As the welcome arm of the Chamber, I feel honored to visit with new members, and assist with Ribbon Events. I am in the financial industry, and I feel during events I gravitate toward other financial professionals. The Ambassadors has introduced me to both small and large business owners, retail, restaurant, oil/gas, and many more. As a Credit Union employee, I believe in the co-operative spirit of people helping people. Within our chamber there is a sense of promoting and protecting local businesses within our community. As an Ambassador I have learned the history and background of many of the established and newer businesses; Ambassadors have direct access to members through our Ribbon Events. I have received referrals and I have given referrals. It’s a time-commitment, but it helps in building relationships. The best thing about being an Ambassador is being surrounded by like-minded, authentic, driven business people. Most of us are not only networking for our primary career; but many of us are involved with local and national non-profits. This allows me to have a better picture of the opportunities and needs of our community. Come and join us for a meeting. We are an authentic group of multi-generations business professionals."

“I like being an ambassador because it a recognized exclusive group giving business' and new business' a way to be proud and shine as classy part of our local community. Getting to chat with the owners of business' showcases the chambers involvement and make them feel as a viable part of our chamber group. I hope personally to make new and lasting friendships and have the opportunity to sell some insurance along the way. I'm so excited about the fellowship within the Ambassadors and how everyone gets along."
—Rich Lange, Hepner Allstate Agency
"I have been in the Ambassadors for about 35 years. The reason I joined was I enjoyed keeping a pulse on the community. It has helped me with my real estate career by knowing what was going on in Casper and the surrounding communities. When I started my own office in 2001 I joined the chamber and have a member ever since. It has been a great way to stay connected and still having a small office. It is fun to see the faces on the business owners when they have a ribbon cutting, they seem very appreciative"
—Kevin Bromley, Bromley Real Estate Co.
“I was new to town and needed to meet as many people as possible. By being an Ambassador I’ve gotten to know the people of Casper from a personal and business stand point. I’ve developed relationships I would have never developed had I not been an Ambassador. Getting to know Rich Lange! No, but really in all honesty, it’s a great committee and I highly recommend anyone to join! JUST DO IT!!!”
