Chamber Diplomats

The Diplomats serve as the Membership Retention Committee of the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce. The Diplomats volunteer their time and resources to sustain a year-round retention program that involves making personal visits and follow-up telephone calls to Chamber Members in order to establish strong relations between the Chamber and the Member. The Diplomats promote membership retention by identifying member concerns and relaying that information to the Chamber and garnering support for the Chamber’s program of work. The Diplomats serve at the pleasure of their employer and are required to follow guidelines and meet the expectations as outlined here to remain in good standing as a Diplomat.


  • Diplomat Monthly Meetings-Each month the second Wednesday
  • Diplomat Advisory Meetings-Held the last Monday of the Month
  • Diplomat Socials-periodically throughout the year
