The Ambassador Program is designed to help first-time attendees ("First-Timers") get the most value out of their first NSA Convention by pairing them up with an experienced NSA Member ("Ambassador"). Typically, that Member is also an experienced speaker, trainer, coach, consultant or author. Or all of the above!
