Make a Connection Through the SIOP Ambassador Program!

Did you know that 25% (approximately 1,500 people) of SIOP conference attendees are first timers? 

As many can recall from their first Annual Conference, SIOP can be a very overwhelming experience, particularly for newcomers. The SIOP Ambassador Program supports our newest attendees by matching them with people willing to share what they’ve learned from past conferences.  Serving as an ambassador involves a relatively small time commitment that can have a tremendous impact on first time SIOP attendees.  Whether you are a graduate student, recent graduate in academic or applied jobs, or more veteran SIOP member, please consider showing a first time SIOP conference attendee the ropes this year!

How to sign up:

  • Anyone interested in participating as an ambassador or newcomer can sign up through the SIOP Annual Conference registration process.


  • For Newcomers: Anyone who is attending SIOP for the first time
  • For Ambassadors: Anyone who has attended at least one previous Annual Conference and who is registered for 2020


  • Matched Ambassadors and Newcomers will meet by phone or email prior to the conference at least once
  • Both will schedule at least one time to meet in person at the event

We’re very excited about the 2020 SIOP Ambassador Program and look forward to your participation! For more information about the Ambassador Program requirements, special events geared specifically for newcomers and ambassadors on Wednesday evening of SIOP, and how to get involved, contact us at or visit our webpage.

The Ambassador Program would love for you to participate and help “Make a Connection” this year in Austin, Texas!
