Sarah F. Shelton, PsyD
Chair of the Ambassador Committee
The National Register is launching an Ambassador program to provide Registrants with the opportunity to engage with psychologists and doctoral students in their community on behalf of the organization. This is a great way for Registrants to gain service experience with a national organization, expand their professional networks, and learn more about professional issues.
The primary responsibility of each National Register Ambassador is to arrange and lead two 15-minute presentations per year. These presentations for psychologists or psychology graduate students should highlight the purpose and benefits of the National Register and can be made at an institution or agency in the Ambassador’s choosing, such as a psychology doctoral program or Veterans Affairs Medical Center in their geographical area. After each presentation, Ambassadors should make themselves available to answer questions from attendees and provide feedback to National Register staff.
To be successful in this role, Ambassadors must have a strong understanding of the National Register’s mission and be comfortable talking about the organization. Please review the National Register Mission Statement and our Benefits Summary prior to applying.
National Register staff will host an orientation webinar in January to train all new Ambassadors.
To apply, please submit a current CV and a 1-page statement explaining your interest in becoming a National Register Ambassador, a brief description of the type of organizations/facilities where you might conduct your Ambassador activities, and an explanation of how the National Register has impacted you personally. Those Registrants selected as Ambassadors will serve a one-year term beginning on January 1, 2019.
