Michigan City, IN –The Michigan City Chamber of Commerce (chamber) announced Gina Alber as the Ambassador of the Quarter for the Fourth Quarter of 2023.  “I thoroughly enjoy serving my community utilizing Ivy Tech workforce services to help build and grow our workforce. I assist with workforce boards, participate in committees to grow local training pipeline activities, and support local events bringing more attention to Northwest Indiana and LaPorte County overall.  Serving as Chief Ambassador of the committee helps me to stay in the loop and be ready to support whatever business needs arise locally.” The Ambassador of the Quarter is given to an individual who has shown dedication to the mission of the Michigan City Chamber of Commerce by regularly attending chamber events, connecting with members through emails, calls, and in-person meetings, and referring non-members for membership.
