Welcome to the SIOP Conference Ambassador Program2011 SIOP Conference Ambassador Program
Due to the success of the 2010 inaugural year of the Ambassador Program, we are bringing it back! In an effort to welcome first-time attendees to the SIOP Annual Conference, we are looking for participants for the Conference Ambassador program. This program will allow new professional SIOP conference attendees ("Newcomers") to select seasoned SIOP conference attendees ("Ambassadors"). The goal is to help the newcomer network with fellow professionals and provide a better overall conference experience for all.
Participation as an Ambassador involves only minimal effort, including the following:
- Connect with the Newcomer at least once before the annual conference via e-mail or phone.
- Meet with the Newcomer at least once on-site at the conference (coffee, a drink, whatever you prefer).
- Help the Newcomer network at the conference by introducing him or her to some of your colleagues.
It is as simple as that! You can sign up to be an Ambassador (SIOP member, associate member, or international affiliate and two or more years attending SIOP conference) or a Newcomer (first time attending the conference) through the general conference registration process or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
