News Release
Vancouver Chamber Adds Three New Ambassadors to the Team (Photo) - 07/31/18

(VANCOUVER, WA) – The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce (GVCC) has expanded their red coat Ambassador team by three outstanding individuals: Lisa Bender of HAPO Community Credit Union, Ross Armstrong of Biggs Insurance, and Judy Musa of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation. The Chamber’s red coat Ambassador team is a high-profile responsibility shared with 22 other member business owners and representatives, across a variety of industries that make up the GVCC’s 1,100 business membership base.

Ross Armstrong was born and raised in Felida, attended Skyview High School and graduated from the University of Washington in 2016. In November 2017, he started working at Biggs Insurance. This was a great opportunity to work with a locally owned business founded in 1935. "I'm able to be an active member of the business community and help to serve the local community that I grew up in," he said. Ross also competed in the Chamber's March Madness Membership drive and excelled, earning a second place finish.

Lisa Bender is a Commercial Banking Relationship Manager for HAPO Community Credit Union. She comes with over sixteen years of banking experience, in both branch services and business banking. She has lived in Vancouver for two years and has four grown children, one boy and three girls, as well as six grandchildren, two boys and four girls. Lisa loves to help her clients reach financial success through providing solutions to their business needs. “My favorite question to ask clients is how did you come up with your business name? I like to understand their thought process within their organization as well as how their business ties into their personal world as well,” she explained.

Judy Musa is the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation's Business Development Director. Musa has a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Northern Illinois University and years of experience in the world of  healthcare including management, sales and recruiting. She has a passion for increasing literacy and the love of lifelong learning as well as for connecting people in our community. "The library as well as the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce are both gems in Vancouver and I enthusiastically support both," she said.
