2013 SIOP Conference Ambassador Program
UPDATE March 11, 2013: Due to popular response, this program has reached capacity for Newcomers, however, we are still recruiting Ambassadors.
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:
- 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 2 or more years attending SIOP conferences) or a Newcomer (first time attending the conference) through the general conference registration process.
Our Ambassadors assist Newcomers with conference-related questions and tips for making the most of your conference experience. If you are looking for a job or internship, please sign up for the Job Placement Center.
