Are you always eager to bring new members into our endocrine community? Are you bringing together those working in intersecting fields to identify with the discipline? You should become the Endocrine Ambassador at your institution and let us support you.
What does an Endocrine Ambassador do?
We know many of our members are acting as champions for endocrinology, encouraging students to join, and bringing people from across the breadth of our discipline together to exchange ideas. We want to support you in the great work you are already doing, by recognising you as an endocrine ambassador.
What does being an Endocrine Ambassador involve?
- Access to our Endocrine Ambassador Grant:
You can get £100 (£200 in exceptional circumstances) to support events that encourage students and colleagues into the world of endocrinology.
For example, this could cover speaker travel for a small interdisciplinary research seminar at your institution, or catering costs at a careers event for your students.
- Materials to help you promote the Society.
- Acting as a proposer and contact point for new membership applications from your institution (with your name listed on the website).
Each year, the three Endocrine Ambassadors who have recruited the most new members will receive a free annual membership to the Society for Endocrinology.
A maximum of 20 grants of £100 each (£200 in exceptional circumstances) are available to ambassadors on a first come, first served basis to support a small event aimed at encouraging interdisciplinary collaborations and recruiting new members to the Society. The funding will either be to provide refreshments or to provide support for a speaker.
