Ambassador Program in Action | Assignments & Briefings
Arthritis Ambassadors are asked to commit 2 hours a month for at least one year to the program. Every other month we host a half hour webinar, called the Ambassador Briefing, where you will receive your current assignment (listed below). Additionally, new Ambassador training takes place immediately following the Ambassador Briefing, stay on the line to learn more about our program and your new role as an Ambassador. The most current training and orientation slides are available on our Arthritis Foundation Youtube account in our advocacy playlist, check it out here!

2020 Ambassador Assignments
2020 Ambassador Briefing Information
JANUARY & FEBRUARY 2020
Explore the New Arthritis Foundation Website | The new Arthritis.org is modern and user-friendly. In this assignment, you’ll be locating at least three crucial advocacy pages so that using the website going forward is a breeze. Whether you’re looking for a resource, communicating with your online network, or contacting legislators, you’ll be a pro in no time. One of your first assignments for 2020 is to familiarize yourself with the new Arthritis.org!
Get in Touch with your Health Legislative Assistant | Health Legislative Assistants are senior members of the policy team within a Congressional office. They conduct research and handle a specific issue area, like health, to inform their member’s policies and legislative portfolio. Meeting with an HLA is a great opportunity to share your story with another subject matter expert on health. Getting your HLA’s contact information is important, so you can send them a personal note when a new action item arises.
