I continue to be in awe of how the NBCC is run. I have never seen or experienced anything like it. It's professional, yet friendly, productive, yet fun. I have met so many incredible people in such a short time. As a small business owner, it is a great feeling to know that so many people are in my corner and would do all they could to help me succeed. I look forward to future events and connecting with other Chamber members.

Becoming part of the Newport Chamber is one of the best things I have done both professionally and personally. The people are wonderful and inspiring. As a Chamber Ambassador, I look forward to my time working with this incredible group every week and mentoring new members with my fellow Ambassadors.

Becoming a member of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce has been an invaluable experience. It has helped me to grow both personally and professionally. I have met so many amazing members, learned about their businesses, as well as learning about them as people too. The Chamber really promotes getting involved with your fellow members and within the community. When you do this, the benefits are truly priceless. I have become involved with the Boat Parade Awards Dinner, as well as the Membership Committee and I graduated from The Leadership Tomorrow Program in 2014. You never really know how much the city that you work or live in has to offer until you become involved. You will find people that you truly want to do business with and who can help each other in so many ways. The Chamber hosts networking events, educational events and monthly Wake Up Newport meetings that have featured speakers with incredible knowledge that they are willing to share with us. Every single month I learn something new from an insider’s perspective. Joining the Newport Beach Chamber was one of the best career decisions that I have made. I am truly blessed to be able to surround myself with so many members that are not only colleagues and friends but like family.

Thanks for all the support!I have been in the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce for over five years and the experience has been truly rewarding. I have learned more about how to employ different marketing methods by listening to others at Chamber events I attend.

Joining the Newport Chamber and becoming an Ambassador has been the best business decision that I have made in the last several years.  The Newport Chamber is the right place for your business if you want to make connections across a wide range of industries, develop business, and support the Newport Beach community.  The business professionals that make up the Newport Chamber are exceedingly enthusiastic, helpful, and motivated.  I encourage all members to attend as many events as possible – you will leave each event with new connections, new opportunities, new ideas, and most importantly – you will have had a great time.

It is my honor to be a proud Member of the Newport Chamber and to share the experience as a "Chamber Ambassador" with all I meet.   Our Chamber leaders are people and business driven and I can't say enough as to the "Passion" of our Chamber Team headed by our "engine", Steve Rosansky and fueled by the amazing efforts of people like Pam Smith, our Membership Services Director and the ever engaging  Jim Villers, whose dedication is evidenced by the size and the scope of our Newport Chamber's outreach to our Community.  I would encourage all business entrepreneurs to take the time to attend our numerous networking opportunities. The time will be worth your efforts.

I recently joined the Newport Beach Chamber, and I’m writing to let you know how happy I am with the organization and what it’s doing for my business. My new member orientation, the “toolkit,” web site, and social media, have far exceeded my expectations. All of the events I’ve gone to have been very organized and well attended. The Ambassadors have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and to strategically introduce me to fellow Chamber Members who could benefit from my services. As a result, I have made many new friends and added clients to my schedule. And that’s why I joined the Chamber; to make new friends, make a contribution, and increase my business. So far, my only regret is that I didn’t join sooner. Please let your Co-workers, Volunteers, Ambassadors, and your Board know how much I appreciate their efforts. What a great organization!'
