The ambassador will work with the district representative and staff and acts as a constituent leader on Alzheimer’s.

After completing training, the ambassador will participate in monthly teleconferences with national staff and fellow ambassadors. The volunteer will visit the district representative at least four times a year in the district and once at the annual Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C.
