Special to The Star
The Meridian Star
The East Mississippi Business Development Corporation (EMBDC) recently presented its November Ambassador of the Month awards.
In third place was Jane Pritchard with WTOK, in second place was James Gray with Meridian Community College, and in first place was Derron Radcliff with MSU Riley Center.
Also, winning the red ticket drawing was Cindy Aucoin with Brown Printing. This drawing is from the pool of ambassadors who have attended EMBDC events over the past month.
This committee of volunteers assists with numerous membership activities and events throughout the year, including ribbon cuttings and ground breaking ceremonies conducted by the EMBDC. They work to secure new members and increase membership retention by building relationships and maintaining communication with existing and prospective members.
This group consists of a limited group of people. The EMBDC would be unable to do all that it does without these dedicated volunteers, according to a press release. To find out more about becoming an ambassador for your community, contact the EMBDC at 601-693-1306.
The EMBDC serves as the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development organization for the community. The EMBDC is located at 1901 Front St., Suite A/ P.O Box 790, Meridian, MS 39302, or on the web at www.embdc.org.
