They are leaders in the business community, committed to giving back to the community through their service work. Ambassadors come from all business sectors, from retail, service, restaurant and the resort business. They have in common a desire for Breckenridge to continue to thrive as a community. To qualify as an Ambassador, you must have maintained residency in the county for at least 2 years.
