About the Ambassador Program: This program was originally launched in 2006 with the aim to outreach ASPB's mission and membership to the postdoc, graduate and undergraduate student community.  This goal was expanded to include greater outreach to plant scientists in industry settings in 2011 and expanded again in 2015 to include outreach to plant scientists in other settings.

The current mission of the Ambassador Program is to:

  • Educate upcoming and new plant scientists about the importance of belonging to a professional society to enhance their career and be part of continuing the efforts of plant biology research.
  • Expand ASPB's membership base of younger constituents and industry scientists to ensure continued growth of the community.
  • Act as a liaison between the Governance of ASPB and the plant science community. 
  • Act as a representative of ASPB to the plant science community, the general science community and the public at large.
