About the Committee

ASCB Ambassadors are appointed in countries around the world to serve as the local voice of ASCB, promoting membership, the online community, events, and opportunities such as awards and scholarships.




  • As an Ambassador, you participate in outreach activities sponsored by ASCB by sharing Society news, events and funding opportunities through your network, your institution email listservs, 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 and identifies you as a leader within the ASCB community. In addition, you are asked for input on new programs and services before they are offered to the full membership, providing you with an opportunity to help shape future offerings.
  • We ask that Ambassadors help spread the word about ASCB’s online community platform. The community is a connection to an incredible resource – thousands of your colleagues who share your challenges, successes, and uncertainties. We hope you and your colleagues find it to be a place where you can ask advice, share your experiences, and build relationships.

Member Criteria

The only eligibility criteria are that you be a current ASCB member and are willing to help spread the word about your professional society! Applications are open year-round. If you have any questions, please email
