Member Ambassadors

Member Ambassadors Committee History

The APDT is continually growing, and as a new member, it can be overwhelming to become a part of the largest dog trainer’s association in the world.  There are so many benefits to membership, available resources and learning opportunities that a new member could feel lost. This where the Member Ambassador Program comes in! Each state and several countries have a Member Ambassador who personally emails every new member in their area to welcome them to the organization. Member Ambassadors not only extend a personal welcome, but also helpful tips for finding the many benefits of membership and an offer of personal help in navigating the association. Many Ambassadors even offer to meet with new members to network and put a human face on the organization.

Our Member Ambassadors are volunteers, and their work is both helpful to new members and satisfying to the Member Ambassadors. If you are interested in becoming a Member Ambassador please contact our Member Ambassadors Coordinator, Heidi Dixner, at heidi@redrovercomeover.com.
