Make a Connection Through the SIOP Ambassador Program

Did you know that hundreds of SIOP Annual Conference attendees each year are first-time participants?

As many can recall from their first SIOP Annual Conference, it can be an 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. We welcome both Newcomers (those who are first-time conference attendees) and Ambassadors (those who have attended SIOP before) to join our program.

Serving as an Ambassador is a relatively small time commitment that can have a tremendous impact. If you are a graduate student, recent graduate in academic or applied jobs, or a more veteran SIOP member, please consider showing a first-time SIOP conference attendee the ropes this year! Have you served as an Ambassador before? We would love to have you participate again!

Stay tuned for some exciting changes we are launching for the program this year to make the experience even more engaging.

How to sign up:
Anyone interested in participating in the program as an Ambassador or Newcomer can sign up through the SIOP Annual Conference registration process. If you have already registered for the conference but are interested in participating in the Ambassador Program you can still sign up here


  • For Newcomers: Anyone who is attending the SIOP Annual Conference for the first time
  • For Ambassadors: Anyone who has attended at least one previous SIOP Annual Conference and who is registered for the 2024 SIOP Annual Conference


  • Matched Ambassadors and Newcomers will actively communicate with one another via email as well as meet by phone or video call at least once prior the conference
  • Schedule a time to meet during the annual conference in April

We’re very excited about the 2024 SIOP Ambassador Program and look forward to your participation!
