What: Regional Ambassadors will be selected from the NetSquared organizer community to serve as leads for their region. Any active organizer, including current and past Regional Ambassadors, who are interested in applying may do so. Up to 8 Ambassadors will be selected.

Duties: The Regional Ambassadors will be expected to do the following:

  • Create a community of support for local organizers in your region by holding calls, answering questions, and being a mentor. Ambassadors are expected to reach out to their cohort at least once per month.
