Aptos, California, January 23, 2024 — Adele Talmadge, co-founder of Talmadge Construction,  is one of the recipients of the Top Ambassador Award from the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce for 2023.

Adele Talmadge“I’m honored to be one of the business leaders selected,” shares Adele, who founded Talmadge Construction with her husband Jeff in 1984. “At Talmadge, we’re huge advocates of improving our community in every way – from helping homeowners breathe new life in their homes, to helping children in need through local organizations, and bolstering local businesses.”

Family-owned since its founding and serving all the residents of Santa Cruz County, Talmadge Construction has built its reputation on its commitment to improving the lives of Santa Cruz County residents, and the community as a whole. As part of their ongoing contributions to the community, they are proud members of the Santa Cruz County Chamber of Commerce to build relationships and foster growth throughout the County. “We all win when our community is not only beautiful, but economically vibrant,” adds Adele.

The new Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for 2024 was introduced, Keynote speaker Dan Schnur  gave an interesting talk and Top Ambassador Awards were presented at the Chamber’s annual breakfast meeting held at the Dream Inn this month.  Ambassadors volunteer to guide new members through their first year with the Chamber, connect with event participants, and promote participating businesses throughout Santa Cruz. At the end of the year, Ambassadors are recognized based on their volunteer work with members and the community.

“I’m so very proud of my wife and colleague,” exclaims Jeff Talmadge, president and co-founder of their design-build remodeling firm. “Adele brings vibrancy to the Team Talmadge Culture and is equally enthusiastic about doing good works for our community. Volunteering at the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce is deeply meaningful, and being acknowledged for all her efforts is much appreciated and heartfelt.”
