Local tourism officials seek volunteer travel "ambassadors"

Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism is recruiting volunteers to become Bellingham “ambassadors” to represent the region and assist visitors to Bellingham and Whatcom County.

Ambassadors will greet travelers at the Bellingham International Airport, the Bellingham Cruise Terminal and in Bellis Fair Mall, with the goal of making travel and tourism to Whatcom County a positive experience for visitors and locals by providing assistance in travel facilities, making recommendations and offering area knowledge.

Volunteers receive professional training in hospitality and regional information to enhance traveler experiences. Those seeking professional work experience or community involvement are encouraged to apply.

Ambassadors are required to complete one four-hour shift per week for 3-6 months. Days and times vary depending on availability. Interested applicants must be at least 18 years old to apply.
