Joan Edgell Named 2020 Tigard Chamber Ambassador of the Year

Joan Edgell, Co-Owner of J and J CPAs, P.C. has been named the 2020 Tigard Chamber Ambassador of the Year.  The Ambassador of the Year Award is presented to an Ambassador volunteer who significantly affects a positive perception of the Chamber through active participation, an optimistic attitude and solid business practices.  The recipient is active, involved, interested, and enthusiastic about making the Tigard Chamber a great organization!  

The Tigard Chamber Ambassadors are a volunteer group of chamber members who manage weekly a.m. networking, Speed Networking and Holiday Happy Hour.  They extend the capabilities of the chamber to deliver services to members in addition to paid staff.  Without the Ambassadors, the chamber could not have the impact it does for its members. 

Joan was a member of the Ambassador team for 5+ years! She demonstrated exceptional leadership skills as the co-chair and chair. Joan always brought positivity and organization to the team. She was always eager to assist and happy to step into any of the roles at Good Morning Tigard. Joan helped make Good Morning Tigard a welcoming place as she greeted visitors at the door. She also was a huge help in collecting donations for the Ultimate Gift Box game for Holiday Happy Hour. One of her peers called her the “Holiday Happy Hour Queen.”

Please join us in congratulating Joan on this well-deserved award.  Her award will be formally presented with other Tigard volunteer and business awards at Tigard’s 2020 Shining Stars Community Awards Gala, held on Friday, October 23rd from 7-9 p.m. virtually on the Tigard Chamber Facebook page and YouTube channel. Join in on the celebration by pre-ordering dinner from De Angelo’s Catering, get dressed up and join the conversation online while enjoying the award ceremony from the comfort of your home.
