Forward Janesville Ambassadors

Who are the Ambassadors?
The Ambassadors are a group of approximately 50 volunteers who represent Forward Janesville by building connections with members. They can be found at all FJI events to make introductions, answer questions, promote our mission and welcome you with a smile (and red Ambassador Wear!).

How does this benefit me and my business?
As a member of Forward Janesville, your business/organization is assigned an Ambassador. He/she is your liaison to Forward Janesville and will provide you with important updates, remind you about upcoming events, answer questions about the benefits of your membership, and much more. Your Ambassador is your personal information source for anything Forward Janesville related!

Who can join?
Any Forward Janesville member in good standing can interview with members of the Action Team (leadership team) to be considered as an Ambassador.

When does the group meet?
The Ambassador meetings are scheduled on the third Wednesday of every month and alternate between 7:30 am, 12:00 pm, and 4:00 pm (meetings last approximately 1 hour).

What motivated you to become an Ambassador?
It is important for me to give back to the community that I live in. After attending several Forward Janesville events, I felt that this would be a great way to give back to the community, as I want to see this community flourish economically and culturally.

What is your favorite thing about Janesville?
I enjoy the diverse places to eat and shop, and especially enjoy the revitalized downtown area, including the Town Square Bubbler area. I have also met so many good people that live and work here.

What are your favorite hobbies?

I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and family, cooking, (am a foodie-grew up in and owned a Supper Club for 6 years) golfing and going to concerts and movies.

If there were one area of change in Janesville that you could influence, what would it be?
I think it would be to continue the optimism and forward thinking about the future of this great community we live in. I feel that Janesville has come a long way since GM left, but the best is yet to come!
