The Welcome Team is made up of existing Chamber Members who attend Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies as well as other Chamber events to officially welcome our new members. Team members become acquainted with the businesses visited, exchange business cards, and often have the opportunity to inspect the operation before the official welcoming picture and Ribbon Cutting.

The Modesto Chamber of Commerce Welcome Team Program requires commitment. As a member of the Welcome Team you will have the opportunity to be a part of one of our most visible and exciting committees, joining a group of approximately 40 dedicated volunteers that give their time to greet, congratulate and encourage new business owners, as well as those reaching important milestones in their businesses.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is an event in which we celebrate new members joining the Chamber. You will be presented with an official Membership Certificate from the Modesto Chamber of Commerce as well as a Certificate
from the City of Modesto. Among the invitees of all Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies are the Chamber’s Welcome Team, made up of fellow Chamber members as well as representatives of our current Local and State Elected Officials. This
is not only a celebration of your business and induction into the Chamber but also a great networking opportunity. A photo of the ribbon cutting will be featured in Progress Magazine, giving you and your business exposure as a new Chamber member!
