Annie Celdran is the Audience Development Manager at the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. In her role, she works to provide memorable and exciting Symphony experiences for audiences.
Although the Symphony has been a longstanding member of the Chamber, this is Annie’s first year as an Ambassador. Annie now sees firsthand how we support the local community and its businesses.
“Springfield is a wonderfully diverse area with a wide range of unique businesses. As an area native, I am invested in helping Springfield remain a vibrant city to live in, work in, and visit. Supporting the Chamber, and therefore the local businesses that serve this community, through its Ambassador program is a great way to make an impact,” said Annie.
She admires the enthusiasm her fellow Ambassadors bring to the Chamber and how they make time in their busy schedules to show up with a positive attitude, a smile, and strategies to strengthen our community.
Annie’s favorite Chamber event is our Rise and Shine Business Breakfast. This networking breakfast series features dynamic speakers from local non-profits, small businesses, industry leaders, and more.
“The Rise & Shine Breakfasts are a great way to make meaningful connections before you begin your workday. The topics are always interesting and informative, and you get a real sense of community,” she said.
When Annie is not dedicating her time to the Symphony or the Chamber, she can be found enjoying her favorite dish at Nadim’s Downtown Mediterranean Grill (Mediterranean salsa!) or spending time with her three-year-old Boxer mix Tula. According to Annie, Tula loves everyone she meets, treats, and long naps in sunny patches. And, honestly, who can’t relate?
The Chamber is a valuable partner in growing your network of talent and local resources. Annie recognizes that we “give your business the power of a united voice within the business community” and “provide opportunities to learn, grow and connect.”
