    Ambassadors & Liaisons

    Ambassadors are GAACC members on steroids! They attend orientations, ribbon cuttings and mixers. They are so special that they get their pictures on our website. They let people know about our programs and resources, and act as a buddy for new members, reaching out to the newbie, personally inviting them to an upcoming event, and introducing them to other members.

    Liaisons help GAACC support our corporate partners by essentially being their relationship manager. They are expected to meet with the assigned corporate partner (CP) quarterly, invite the CP to GAACC events, and update the CP about GAACC's accomplishments.
