• Ambassadors

  • Creating a Strong Local Economy
    Providing Networking Opportunities and Business Referrals


    Ambassadors are the Chamber's most visible committee. They conduct member visits, serve as greeters at Chamber events and help to coordinate business grand openings and ribbon cutting ceremonies. Ambassadors can easily be recognized at events by their maroon blazers or polo shirts with the Chamber badge prominently displayed. As representatives of the Chamber, Ambassadors are often called upon to answer questions and be the intermediary between the public and the Corona Chamber of Commerce. In addition to their contribution to the Chamber and their prominence in the community, Ambassadors often cultivate their own personal contacts while completing their duties. Committee meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 12pm.

    Laura Arrona is a Financial Advisor for Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial. She is passionate about helping individuals turn dreams and goals into a customized plan with milestones and an achievable accomplishment date. She is a firm believer that if you control your ‘controlables’ consistently, the world has a way of inevitably delivering what is due.

    Laura was part of the Creating A Path to Success (CAPS) program in 2014, through the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, during the year of the program’s 10th anniversary celebration. She has since returned as a mentor and now a presenter for the classes of young leaders in the CAPS program. It is her passion to work with individuals and encourage them to strive for more, and help them understand how they can reach higher.
