What is an Ambassador ONE committee member? The "Organized Network Exchange" is composed of supplier product/service company volunteers. Ambassador ONE society members are representatives of the Houston Apartment Association to place focus on networking to bring supplier members together to reinforce relationships and to promote professionalism in the multifamily industry. They are tasked with sharing industry leads and news, and to contact new and current members to inform them of upcoming events and promoting membership benefits and services.
How does my involvement in the Ambassador One Society help me promote my product or service? You can increase your customer base as you contact HAA members to promote membership benefits. The initial contact is not the time for a hard sell, but it’s a good opportunity to make your presence known. When introducing yourself, use your company name feel free to mention what your company does and say that you are a volunteer for HAA. Be sure to give contacts your business card so they can readily identify you with your company. After tending to HAA business, follow up with a thank-you note and brochure on your company. Plus, networking with fellow supplier partners is a great way to build professional connections.
How do Ambassadors know whom to contact? Each month, HAA supplies the club volunteers with a list of members with contact information to reach out to on behalf of HAA and promote member benefits and events.
What kind of valuable information does an Ambassador exchange? When changes occur at a property, such as a new development, property acquisition, staff change, remodeling bids, etc. this can present a new new business opportunity for other members. The Ambassador Club volunteers work together to share the information about these changes and the product or service needs which can be very beneficial information for other volunteers.
