The City of Goodlettsville and the Goodlettsville Area Chamber of Commerce recently joined together earlier this year to launch the Goodlettsville Ambassador Program. The program hosted its first training session in March and has since been going strong with 26 members who have already completed training. There are lifelong Goodlettsville residents in the group as well as people new to the area interested in becoming more involved in the community. This program is open to members of community organizations and others who would like to promote Goodlettsville in a unique and positive way. An Ambassador serves the community in a number of ways, including greeting the public at community events, promoting Goodlettsville during day-to-day activities, and assisting with managing projects based upon strengths and skills.
