who we are
Committee Member Profi le
Julie Dondoneau is a business solutions account executive for Mid- continent Communications. She currently serves as a Chamber Ambas- sador. An ambassador since 2000, Dondoneau was honored by her peers as Ambassador of the Year in 2004 and served as chairwoman of the committee in 2005.
“The Chamber Ambassador committee has allowed me the oppor-
tunity to network with business leaders that I never would have had an opportunity to connect with before. It’s also been nice to be able to meet with my business clients in a social setting and get to know them away from the ofice,” Dondoneau said. She shared what others should know about being an Ambassador,
“Only one thing?! You have to be able to be lexible with your schedule to be able to attend the ribbon cuttings, ground breakings, Chamber mixers, Ambassador meetings, other Chamber hosted events and you should like to talk to people.”
