ISPE Ambassador Program Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What are the attributes of an Ambassador? 
Answer: ISPE is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person who wants to make a difference in the pharmaceutical science and manufacturing industry. An Ambassador is not necessarily a senior level person, but has the leadership and communication skills to influence his/her colleagues. Ambassadors must take the initiative to publicize ISPE to the relevant people/disciplines in his/her organization.

Question: As an Ambassador, will I have to attend training or special meetings?
Answer: No, our Ambassador Program does not require someone to attend additional training or special meetings. As an Ambassador, you will be asked to wear a ribbon at all of your regularly scheduled local ISPE Affiliate/Chapter events.

Question: Are there costs associated with being an Ambassador? 
Answer: The cost associated with the recognition elements of the Ambassador Program is budgeted and paid for by ISPE Headquarters. Nominal costs such as telephone charges, faxes, etc., may be incurred and will be the sole responsibility of the Ambassador.

Question: Is this a local or international initiative?
Answer: The Ambassador Program is an international program with a primary focus on your local Affiliate and Chapter events. Being an active member locally allows for networking events, brainstorming and a real sense of community. As an Ambassador, you are recognized both internally at your company, and at local events.

Question: Is this a leadership role?
Answer: Yes, as an Ambassador, you have the opportunity to reach out to members of your organization and create opportunities to network, disseminate critical industry information, and add your personal touch to various industry recognized communications.
Question: My company has a similar program. Will this conflict with my company's initiatives? 
Answer: No, we recognize that many organizations have a designated person or an ISPE Member who serves in a similar role. This program will officially acknowledge this Member for his/her efforts while distributing different yet critical information from ISPE.

Question: Is this program limited to a certain type of pharmaceutical company? 
Answer: No, all companies in the pharmaceutical, science and manufacturing industry are invited to participate.
