Arthritis Ambassador Program Current Assignment

Ambassador Program: Current Assignment

Arthritis Ambassadors are asked to commit 2 hours a month for at least one year to the program. One hour includes a webinar, where you will receive your current assignment (listed below). Additionally, new Ambassador training takes place via conference call every quarter. The most current training and orientation slides are also listed below.

Platinum Ambassadors are top Ambassadors who complete all Ambassador assignments for the year (October 2016-October 2017), plus 4 bonus activities, and raise $1,000 (give or get). 2017 Platinum Ambassadors are eligible to attend the Platinum Ambassador Fly In in Washington, DC in March 2018.  If you are reengaging in the Ambassador program or a new Ambassador before March 31, 2017 and missed the first two assignments of the 2017 Ambassador year, you must complete 3 additional bonus assignments in addition to the regular Platinum Ambassador requirements.  Ambassadors who join after March 31, 2017 will not be eligible for the Platinum Ambassador Fly In. Ambassadors wishing to obtain Platinum Ambassador will need to report all of their assignments and bonus activities in the Reporting Center at www.arthritis.org/advocatereport
