SAA State Ambassador Program
About the Task Force
An SAA State Ambassador is a national SAA volunteer who serves as a leader for a state in which they are enrolled academically, in order to improve state and interstate communication between SAA chapters (if more than one exists) and the state's professional organization. The SAA State Ambassador will work closely with the Academy's State Leaders Network and other professional mentors, as appropriate. The goal is to have one SAA State Ambassador per state.
The volunteer term for SAA State Ambassadors follows the SAA Board of Directors term, July 1 - June 30.
In addition to the responsibilities outlined in the SAA volunteer expectations document, the SAA State Ambassador will:
- Communicate monthly with SAA chapter representatives within the state and encourage collaboration and participation among chapters for local, state and national events;
- Assist with the recruitment of new members and chapters by reaching out to undergraduate or graduate programs; and,
- Communicate with professional leaders within your state.
