What is an RSB ambassador?
RSB ambassadors are enthusiastic, active and engaged members of the Royal Society of Biology who act as the key contact for the RSB within their workplace. Ambassadors showcase the benefits of membership, promote the work of the Society, and encourage new and current members to get involved.
What should I contact an RSB ambassador about?
- Contacting your resident RSB ambassador to discuss membership and how it can benefit you.
- Inviting your resident ambassador to get involved in your event, such as a careers day, lecture series or research conference. They may bring a stand of RSB literature, contribute a short talk about the Society, or invite a staff member from the RSB to participate.
- Organising a seminar about RSB membership, or professional registration/development.
- In some circumstances, ambassadors in another workplace may be able to co-host an event with you, or speak at your event.
Are you interested in becoming an RSB ambassador?
If you're a current AMRSB, MRSB or FRSB of the Society, based in HE or Industry, please apply on mySociety to apply to become an RSB ambassador. If you have any questions about the scheme, please get in touch.
N.B. At this stage, we are only accepting applications from UK-based members at the AMRSB, MRSB and FRSB grade.
If you are an RSB ambassador, you can follow this link to the Membership Promotion Toolkit where you can request promotional resources to support your events (currently suspended), and at the bottom of the page, find supporting documents and guidelines, such as your Ambassador Briefing Pack and the post-event impact survey.
