What we need at the event. If you’re assigned a specific role within your subject matter expertise, you will own that role. Presence and Interaction. Ambassadors will interact with all attendees at the event to raise the comfort level of persons in attendance. A special networking area will feature the presence of Cannabis Ambassadors. Your ability to connect people together with similar needs and interests will help raise awareness -together. “Aloha, is there anyone I can introduce you to?” “Have you met…?” should be familiar greetings heard at the event. Kindness and Communication. Ambassadors will relay valuable information (within their subject matter expertise) to attendees including insights into pending legislative efforts, education and training resources, names of certifying physicians and nurses, strain/condition matching and many other offerings and opportunities at the event. Ambassadors know the event. Knowing the times of presentations, the presenters, other onsite experts and Cannabis and Hemp supporters in attendance. Ambassadors are able to answer virtually any question about the event. It is your kuleana to ask questions of other Ambassadors to gain a solid understanding of the goals and opportunities leading up to and on the day of the event. For example, tradeshow exhibits, vendors, sponsors, ambassadors and other volunteers. We need Ambassadors to network with and between all attendees. Bringing people together to raise awareness is your primary role and should be shared with all attendees. Attendees will recognize Ambassadors by their ambassador name tags and we will strongly encourage all attendees to seek out Ambassadors for answers and event support. Your support outside the venue. As an Ambassador you’re welcome to join us Friday night before the event. You’ll likely get questions at this event and this will be a great time to get a feel for the attendees and stakeholders. On event day you are an Ambassador everywhere you go. Ambassadors help the general public find the venue and understand why their “attendance” and “supporting patients” is important to everyone eg; personal freedom, affordability, safety and the need to build a compassionate Cannabis culture and economy in the Aloha State. What we don’t need. Ambassadors will not share information beyond their subject-matter expertise or qualifications. In other words, medical and legal advice should be prefaced in conversation with, “I’m not a Doctor or Lawyer so I don’t provide medical or legal advice yet it is my understanding that…” in all conversations where attendees might confuse knowledge with a license or actual credentials. It is critical that we refer attendees to folks more qualified than us to answer medical or legal questions. What we provide. Gratitude, introductions and exposure for your startup. Your name will be mentioned multiple times during the event in gratitude for your support. If you have a startup or any business you would also like mentioned, please do so in the signup form. We’ll blast that out during the event too. Every volunteer gets a swag bag. We can’t promise it will make up for the time you give but you’ll get what many will not -because volunteers come first. Refreshments. We aren’t promising a free meal yet. But we will have some healthy snacks and at least water.
