Fran Maltby of Juliet’s Salon was named the Ambassador of the Quarter Tuesday during the monthly meeting of the Ambassadors Club for the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“Fran was chosen as Ambassador of the Quarter for April, May, June 2015, not only because she attends so many of the Chamber sponsored events but because she takes the time to engage with the people she meets, find out as much as she can about their business and then refers those businesses to other community leaders – both chamber members and non,” said Chief Ambassador Erika Weber of VTC Enterprises.

Weber also recognized members of the ambassador team for their years of service:

In addition, the group also voted for the Ambassador of the Year, who will be awarded at the 96th Annual Awards and Installation Dinner for the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors and Convention Bureau.
