ATTEND PNDC FOR FREE!
PNDC Speaker & Room Ambassador Program
As a PNDC Ambassador, you will be reimbursed for 25 percent of the cost of the full conference badge at the early bird rate for each session you are assigned. Volunteer for four sessions and you can attend the conference for free! You will also receive CE for the sessions you sign up for, reimbursed parking on the day you volunteer and you’ll be free to use the VIP lounge to relax and enjoy complimentary breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages.
Being an Ambassador is a great way to receive free CE, free parking, and free meals at the Pacific Northwest Dental Conference.
There are two programs open to member dentists and staff — speaker ambassadors and room ambassadors. Each has separate responsibilities but the same great benefits. Any member of a dentist’s team can participate as a room ambassador, but speaker ambassadors are generally filled by dentists. All dentist participants must be WSDA members.
The required tasks are easy, with a short list of responsibilities that includes getting the speaker to the correct room, introducing the speaker to the audience, serving as the point person for any audio-visual needs, sharing complimentary meals with the speaker, assisting the room host as needed, and staying for the duration of the presentation.
Being a speaker ambassador is a fantastic opportunity to increase your face-time with one of the country’s most influential and sought-after speakers while helping the PNDC to run smoothly. Your work behind the scenes as a host makes the Conference one of the best in the nation — and it’s a lot of fun.
If you’re not as social or are a dental team member and want to participate and reap the benefits of hosting — being a room ambassador may be just the ticket for you. Room ambassadors monitor the classrooms, staff the door, greet attendees (and make sure they have the proper credentials to attend), and work to maximize the room space and seating. Following the presentation they scan membership cards for WSDA member dentists and assist the speaker host as needed.
