As a marketing representative of Holiday Lanes, I “get to” volunteer as a Bossier Chamber of Commerce Diplomat. Doing so allows me to connect and network with people in the community and share with them the “AWESOMENESS” that is Holiday Lanes. When I first began my adventure with the Chamber of Commerce, I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the time or effort. I already had plenty to do and wasn’t sure I would be able to commit to the time requirements.I also had a twinge of guilt that I wasn’t at my desk working away on bowling events or promotions. That feeling soon faded. I have come to realize the value of being a Bossier Chamber Diplomat. Each week, I learn something new about our community. I engage with other companies and organizations which often give us the opportunity to partner and cross-promote.
Over the years, I have done many things. I’ve been a graphic artist, a print shop manager, a railroad safety and rules coordinator/trainer, a web ministry trainer and now a marketing director. I always had my ear to the ground listening for that next opportunity to come my way. I never thought that working for a bowling alley would be the place that I would find my happiness and stop listening for other opportunities. I have found my place. And with that I have found a way to make a difference in my community by volunteering as a Diplomat. I LOVE MY JOB!The Bossier Chamber of Commerce is a private, non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote growth and development within the communities of Bossier Parish and Shreveport. The Chamber promotes growth and development by utilizing its most valuable resource, its membership.
