About our I Am Lynchburg. Tourism Ambassador Program
The Office of Economic Development & Tourism of the City of Lynchburg invites front line assets and residents to participate in our Tourism Ambassador Program. As part of the mission of our I Am Lynchburg Campaign (see other side of this card), the Ambassador Program will give you a visitor’s perspective and inside knowledge of our City’s many tourism products and prepare you to be a helpful and knowledgeable ambassador of Lynchburg for the hundreds of thousands of visitors we welcome each year.
Upon completion of the workshop, you will receive an I Am Lynchburg Tourism Ambassador certificate and the official symbol of hospitality, the coveted pineapple lapel pin. You will also receive passes to local and regional attractions to continue your first-hand experience of Lynchburg and the region!
