Sherwood Chamber Programs
Sherwood Chamber Leads Group
This group exists solely for the purpose of helping each member get more business by providing leads to each other. Since only one member is allowed per business category, it is a non-competitive environment. We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday, 8:30 AM, at the Sherwood Chamber office. Call Kellie Wall at the Chamber office, 501-835-7600, to find out if your category is available.
Sherwood Young Professionals
Are you a young professional living/working in the Sherwood, Arkansas area? Are you looking for a way to connect? Network? Or have fun?
Then Sherwood Young Professionals is the group for you! This group is a networking avenue for young professionals to build relationships with other future community leaders. Whether you're job searching, wanting to promote your business, or looking for business contacts, this organization will help you achieve these goals in a fun way.
Ambassadors are highly visible, prestigious volunteers for the Chamber. Ambassadors attend ribbon cuttings, Luncheons, Business After Hours and other events as goodwill representatives of the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce.
Upon their appointment, each Ambassador makes a commitment to build lasting relationships with the Chamber membership, particularly existing members, in order to build a loyal, committed membership base that will continue to support, participate in and invest in the Chamber.
Sherwood Junior Ambassadors
The 2020-21 Jr. Ambassador program is offered to high school freshman who desire the opportunity to learn more about Sherwood and the surrounding community. This program is similar to the Leadership Greater Arkansas program but on a smaller scale. Students participating in the Jr. Ambassador program will be introduced to community leaders from area businesses, government agencies, military installations, and civic organizations. This is designed to enhance and develop leadership and networking skills.
The Jr. Ambassador program is looking to enroll about 16 students from the three high schools in Sherwood: Sylvan Hills, Abundant Life, and Lisa Academy. These students will commit to the following:
- Personal growth
- Serving the community through volunteer work
- Improving the community to favorably impact the development and quality of the community
- GPA of at least 3.0
- Reliable attendance history in school
- Leadership development plan
- Participation in a group project to develop leadership and team building skills
The leadership portion of this program will be based on Clifton Strengths to help these students identify what they do best and develop those talents into strengths. We understand that this is a mission that your organization believes in and would like to align our leadership program with one of the best places to work in our state.
