Chamber Ambassador Program

An Ambassador must be a current member of the Maple Valley/Black Diamond Chamber.  Ambassadors welcome and greet members at various events and member visits throughout the year.  The Ambassador "member touch" is vital to the health of our organization and serves as a perfect opportunity to create a future personal business contact.


  • Professional networking opportunities.
  • First point-of-contact to all members.
  • Obtain an insider’s perspective to the Maple Valley-Black Diamond community.
  • Make lasting business connections, gaining exposure of your name and company before the business community.
  • Recognized on the Chamber website and in monthly newsletters.
  • Leadership Development

Meet your 2020 Ambassador Team!

Dawn Cruff, Amanda Gross, Caroline Whitlock & Paul Hutton.


Dawn Cruff: 

I am a Real Estate Broker with Amber Bills Real Estate Group, and enjoy helping others with their next chapter whether they are buying or selling a home. Enjoy connecting with others, and giving back to my community.

Amanda Gross:

My name is Amanda Gross and I am a financial advisor with Edward Jones. My office is located in the Wilderness Village Shopping Center. My main objective at Edward Jones is to build a relationship with each client to get to know what is important to them and help them reach those goals. That is also why I joined the Ambassador group. Each new member joins the Chamber with a goal in mind and I want to help them achieve it.

Caroline Whitlock:

After teaching secondary Math and French for 28 years I decided that it was time to try something new. I am now working as an Edward Jones Financial Advisor, teaching people how to prepare for and live in retirement (with no homework to grade in the evening!). I enjoy being involved in the community and look forward to meeting new members and helping them to also get involved in community events and activities.

Paul Hutton:

After 30+ years travelling the world as a software executive/consultant I decided to retire and purchase my own travel agency. My objective is to help others experience the best possible vacations, anywhere in the world. I joined the Ambassador program because I want to learn about other member’s companies and offer my help in any way possible. I understand the challenge of being a new company in town and not knowing who I can turn to for help in getting established or growing my business. I look forward to working with you.
