2014 SIOP Conference Ambassador Program
UPDATE 5/5/14: THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING AMBASSADOR OR NEWCOMER SIGN-UPS.
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 professional member and 2 or more years attending SIOP conferences) or a Newcomer (first time attending the conference, with preference given to SIOP professional members) through the general conference registration process.
Our Ambassadors assist Newcomers with conference-related questions and tips for making the most of their conference experience. If you are looking for a job or internship, please sign up for the Job Placement Center.
If you have questions about the Conference Ambassador program, please contact Valeria Alterman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
