• Chamber Ambassador of the Quarter: Julie Colegrove

    Congratulations to Julie Colegrove, who had been chosen as the Ambassador of the Quarter for July through September 2019!

    Julie, along with her husband Jim, are long-time members of the Ambassador Committee and can be seen at most of the Chamber’s events including the Friday Build Your Business breakfasts, monthly Mixers and ribbon cuttings for new businesses. The Colegroves, who sell Shaklee products, enjoy being actively involved in the community through the Ambassador Committee.

    Julie says she hopes she can continue to be an asset to the Ambassador committee through her active involvement.

    “I am very proud and honored to be chosen for this award," Colegrove said. "I'm just doing what I enjoy! As Ambassadors our objective is to welcome new businesses and encourage them to get involved in Chamber functions designed to support and promote their business. It is always exciting to see the enthusiasm and expectations of a new entrepreneurs launching a new future.”

    Colvegrove says the support and enthusiasm of the business community is why she became an Ambassador 22 years ago. 

    Julie (and Jim) have been with Shaklee Products much longer than they have been with the Chamber and say their membership and involvement in The Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce has been the best investment they could have made to boost their business.

    “It has been rewarding and we are proud to say many, many people in the community are enjoying better health and other benefits from our sharing Shaklee products," Colegrove said. “We appreciate and thank the Chamber for all the support they give us as members."

    Congratulations to Julie on this well deserved recognition as Ambassador of the Quarter! We greatly value the support our Ambassador Committee gives the Chamber and local business community. You can learn more about how to get involved in the Ambassador Committee here.
