Ambassadors are fellow Chamber members who volunteer to act as peer mentors for new members assisting them in navigating the Chamber’s many program and event offerings.  In addition, these critical volunteer members assist with events and Ribbon Cuttings.

Ambassador of the Month - Ada Stevens

I opened SnapHappy Photos in November 2007 and my husband joined me full time in early 2012. We specialize in Portraits for families and business, including Head Shots and Staff Group Photos, Event photos (for both Social and Corporate events) and architectural Photos. I am a people person and am passionate about photography and delivering high quality products in all we do.

When we moved to this area in August 2018, we knew that we needed to get networked as quickly as possible in order to establish our business here. So we joined several organizations and strive to be active in all of them. We have found that Union County Chamber has been a blessing with the friendliness and sincerity of the staff and the quality of members we have met. Having been a member of various chambers since 2014, I feel I could help you get the most from your membership with Union County Chamber.
