Monica Delius Burnsville Chamber Ambassador Monica Delius

Since 2018:  Why did you join the Ambassador Committee?  I joined the Ambassador Committee so I could wear real clothes again! As a yoga instructor my “real clothes” often stay home. Seriously, the main reason I joined the committee is because I enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories. I am passionate about connecting businesses with common goals and interests.

We have such a wide array of businesses who are part of the Chamber.  I look forward to learning more about their businesses and welcoming new members as well. As a Burnsville resident for over 20 years I am excited to help the Chamber grow in 2018.

Since 2018:  Why did you join the Ambassador Committee?  Maybe it’s the marketing background in me but I have a sincere passion for learning about other local businesses, hearing their story, finding out what makes them unique and visiting their locations to experience their environment. As an ambassador the better I get to know other business owners and the services they provide, the better both myself and Integrated can provide referrals to these businesses.

John Swaney

Since 2018:  Why did you join the Ambassador Committee?  When I started Precision Signs & Imaging almost 6 years ago, and relocated to my current location in Burnsville, I immediately joined the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce. It was soon thereafter that I saw what the role of a Chamber Ambassador was, promoting the Chamber, helping to recruit new members and retain current membership. Yet Ambassadors were able to promote their business at the same time. A win-win-win as far as I’m concerned, as a strong Chamber helps all area businesses, and the Burnsville community in general.

Brian Wisdorf brian wisdorf ambassador

Since 2016:  Why did you join the Ambassador Committee?  There are many great reasons to be a part of the Chamber.  Not every member joins the Chamber with the same aspirations.  I joined the Ambassadors to help keep the Chamber connected to its members so that we can find ways for the members to meet those aspirations.
