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. 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!

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.


  • 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 2021


  • Matched Ambassadors and Newcomers will meet by phone, video conference, or email prior to the annual conference at least once
  • Both will schedule at least one time to check-in (i.e., meet up virtually) during the annual conference

We’re very excited about the 2021 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, and how to get involved, contact us at ambassador@siop.org or visit our webpage.

The Ambassador Program would love for you to participate and help make a connectoin this year!
