Our volunteer Ambassador Club is a vital part of the Chamber as they welcome new businesses, keep open communication with members, assist with member retention, & more!

Ribbon Cuttings

Each partner with a new business in town is offered a complimentary Ribbon Cutting! The Ambassadors club arranges for a photographer, provides the ribbon & scissors for the ribbon cutting ceremony, and presents a plaque to the business. This is then shared to the Experience Burlington social media platforms so all of Burlington can help welcome the new business!

If you are a partner with a major renovation, location change, milestone anniversary, etc.- we would love to provide a ribbon cutting for you as well!
