ASCB Seeks Volunteer Leaders for the 2018 Ambassador Program

ASCB Ambassadors are appointed in countries around the world to serve as the local voice of ASCB, promoting membership, events, and opportunities such as awards and scholarships. ASCB proudly recognizes our member Ambassadors listed below.

As an Ambassador, you participate in outreach activities sponsored by ASCB by sharing Society news, events and funding opportunities through your network, your institution e-mail listserves, graduate student and postdoc organizations, and social media. You are a peer contact for ASCB members in your institution/country. Your efforts to share the ASCB benefits and grow membership fosters a sense community for ASCB members. In addition, you are asked for input on new programs and services before they are offered to the full membership.

What you gain from the program includes recognition throughout 2018 on the ASCB website and at ASCB events, increased networking opportunities, and a 5% discount off your 2019 member dues for each new member you refer who joins through 12/31/2018 (members may be in the regular, postdoc, student, undergrad and educator categories).

You must be an ASCB member to serve as Ambassador, one ambassador per institution. Please email ascbinfo@ascb.org with Ambassador 2018 in the subject line and include your name, title, institution, and reasons you would like to volunteer (200 words or less).
