Greater Portland Ambassadors
The Ambassador Program cultivates a network of regional champions who raise awareness of key regional economic development issues by communicating with, educating and informing stakeholders, policy makers, citizens and the media. GPI investors at the Silver Level and above are invited to participate in the Ambassador Program. The program is open to anyone within a GPI partner company or organization.
These emerging leaders from GPI partner companies and organizations learn about regional assets, collective and individual strengths of companies and institutions, successes and challenges in growing the economy and build an overall understanding of how public and private entities work together to strengthen our region.
The program features a series of events and activities throughout the year specifically geared toward fostering knowledge of our region to develop Ambassadors who can speak comfortably on a range of essential topics.
Participants who attend a minimum of four (4) “certified” designated events will become certified Ambassadors at the end of the year. Current Certified Ambassadors must attend three (3) “certified” events to maintain their certification. Our Certified Ambassadors will help shape the program in subsequent years as well as be invited to participate in additional GPI events, provide written perspectives and be a go-to advocate on regional economic development.
