Ambassador Program

VITAL2024 is a key way to connect with fellow leaders at hospitals providing safety net care. We’re looking for member ambassadors to give a warm welcome to first-time attendees by sharing your conference experiences, highlighting key events, and helping attendees make the most of their time at VITAL2024.

Application deadline is May 31.

  • Ambassadors will be available to their paired participant(s) to help navigate the conference and aid networking.
  • Staff will provide information to ambassadors about their paired participant(s), the association, and the conference.
  • Commitment:
    • Email your first-time attendee before VITAL2024.
    • Arrange to meet during the conference.
    • Be available to your assigned first-time attendee(s) and others throughout the conference.
