Chamber Ambassadors

The Ambassador program promotes the enhancement and ideals of the Membership Committee. Individual members are trained to become a mentor for the incoming new members of the Chamber. Ambassadors facilitate and promote Chamber events, welcome new members, and outreach to the Chamber membership as a whole. Join the Ambassador Program and be the first to meet new members.


Stacey Dunn, Chick-fil-A Temecula

Vice President of Marketing & Sales in Brand Growth Development for Chick-fil-A Temecula

"Thank you for choosing me as Your Ambassador of the Year, I am so grateful and blessed. This Milestone means more to me than anyone knows. I came out to Chick-fil-A Temecula almost three years ago and had a goal, to have the Temecula Valley think of Chick-fil-A Temecula when they hear our Operator Jim Toth’s name or mine. I wanted to make an impact in our City, our Chamber, and our businesses.  This award brought me closer to each one of our Ambassadors, Chamber Staff, City of Temecula Officiants, and Business Owners all over the Temecula Valley. This award confirms I am right where I should be and Temecula is my home!"

I am the Temecula coordinator for We match worthy, non-profit organizations in need of volunteers with those looking for opportunities to serve. 

When you volunteer through JustServe, you’re not only changing the lives of those in need, but you’re also transforming your own life. Research highlights the incredible benefits of volunteering — from better physical and mental health, lower rates of depression and loneliness, to new skills and a deeper sense of purpose. It’s a self-reinforcing loop of positivity.

If you're looking for personal, family, club, or business opportunities to give back to organizations in our community, register at

JoAnne Matthewson

Excel Bank

As Vice President and Community Relations Officer at Excel Bank, I bring over 25 years of experience in the Temecula banking community. Previously, I spent a decade at a local community bank, focusing on managing the Real Estate mortgage division. Since joining Excel Bank in 2008, I initially managed the USDA loan portfolio and later transitioned to overseeing SBA loan servicing at our Loan Servicing Center also in Temecula.

In 2023, the Bank successfully launched a full-service branch office on Jefferson Avenue, enhancing our ability to engage with and support the local community. This new location has enabled me to play a key role in promoting the Bank's presence and participation in community activities.

Having lived in Temecula since 2002, I actively promote the SHOP LOCAL ethos by regularly visiting Old Town and enjoying the local wineries in wine country. My interests include travel, golf, yoga, and attending all school activities of my grandchildren within our community.
