Advocacy Ambassador Program Overview
The Alzheimer’s Ambassador Program is designed to help the Alzheimer’s Association achieve its federal policy priorities by empowering volunteers to engage with their elected officials.
Alzheimer’s Ambassadors serve as the main point of in-district contact for a targeted member of Congress. They develop trusted relationships with their assigned congressional office through ongoing, personal contacts, drawing upon proven techniques and the support of Association National and Chapter staff.
Ambassadors are grassroots volunteers who commit to serve for a renewable one year term. Over the course of this annual term, Ambassadors perform a number of volunteer activities that include periodic in-district meetings with elected officials, attendance at the annual Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum in Washington D.C., written and online communication with elected officials, participation in monthly calls & training sessions, outreach to local media outlets and frequent interaction with local Association staff.
Contact your local Alzheimer's Association chapter for details about the Ambassador program.
If you are already engaging with elected officials and wish to report your activity, please visit the Alzheimer's Advocacy Reporting and Trends portal.
