Description of the Role of Elected Ambassadors

As part of our commitment to good governance, our Articles allow for some of the present officers to stand-down at the AGM (although they are eligible for re-election where applicable).

The next election of Ambassadors will take place on 7 December 2023, at the Dorset Chamber AGM. 

We have spaces for new elected Ambassadors this year and applicants will be ratified by the Board, prior to the AGM. The nominations will then be subjected to a vote at the AGM by Members attending. You can find out more about the role of a Dorset Chamber Ambassador here
