Influence 2023 Ambassador Program

Save the Date: Influence 2023 Ambassador/First-Timer Webinar
Monday, July 10 @ 8 p.m. ET

Influence, or the NSA Convention, can be overwhelming. Even to experienced NSA Members.

Enter the Ambassador Program!

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!

As a First-Timer, you may be wondering:

  • How does it all work?
  • What are my goals?
  • Where do I begin?
  • What sessions should I attend?
  • Who should I meet with?
  • What questions should I be asking?
  • What is the best use of my time?
  • How should I process information and implement next steps?
  • How can I feel less overwhelmed?
  • What else should I know?

Have no fear – the Ambassador Program is here!

As a First-Timer, you can sign up to have your very own Ambassador to help guide you through the Convention process while answering these and any other questions you may have along the way.

How cool is that?

You may even walk away with a friend and someone you’ll look forward to seeing every year at Influence.

Ambassadors! We need you!

About Being an Ambassador:

  • You will be paired with one or two First-Timers and will be connected via email, or through a virtual or live meeting.
  • This will be an extremely valuable experience for both the “First-Timer” and the “Ambassador” to learn and grow together.  Who knows, you might make a new best friend in the process!
  • Where possible, Ambassadors are paired with consideration to common area of expertise, geography, etc.

“Back in 2012, I went to my first NSA convention and didn’t know a soul. Thanks to the Program, that changed the moment I entered the hotel lobby. My buddy, David Newman, made it his mission to ensure I felt welcomed and part of the NSA tribe. A decade later, I’m attending my 10th NSA convention and David continues to be one of my best friends.” – Corey Perlman
