They will assist in promoting Chiang Mai including the goals and objectives of CMCC. They will market and support Chiang Mai/CMCC via their personal relationships. They will also assist with some events, activities or projects that involve them either directly or where they have relevant experience.”

An official dinner hosted by CMCC, and led by committee member Martin Venzky-Stalling introducing some of the goodwill ambassadors was hosted at the Four Seasons Resort and Spa in September.
