AAR Ambassador Program

Are you an AAR member who is passionate about your profession and guild? Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm? Do you think AAR membership is an important part of your professional life? If so, the AAR is looking for you!

AAR is continuing to develop a grassroots Ambassador program to help get information out to people about the study of religion and AAR programs. We want to give Ambassadors the tools to effectively educate and inspire people to get the most out of their AAR membership.

Ambassadors may choose to do any of the following activities:

  • Positively represent the AAR.
  • Be a point of contact for information (brochures, pamphlets, etc.) to display and place in common areas of your department or professional space.
  • Act as a resource for current AAR members and prospective members.
  • Lead a short presentation to students and/or faculty about the program and services the AAR provides and encourage AAR membership. AAR will provide you with some helpful guidelines and materials on how to make this happen.
  • Volunteer at our Membership booth at the Annual Meetings.
  • Attend the New Member reception at the Annual Meetings to discuss member benefits with your new Academy colleagues.
  • Do you have an idea? What would you like to do? Let us know by sending it to

Being an AAR Ambassador is a great way to volunteer within your schedule. You can build new connections and learn more about the AAR.

Requirements: The tenure of the ambassador position is from January 1 through December 31, and current AAR membership is required. No travel and minimal impact on your time is required—we just want your enthusiasm and willingness to serve!
