Once we make this decision, we will be able to determine the appropriate volunteer roles and numbers of ambassadors required. We will then send out an email to chapter Presidents calling for chapter nominated volunteers for the conference. Ambassadors that have already registered will be given a partial refund for their participation and those who have not will be given a special discount code to be applied during registration.
