NIGP Ambassadors to the Chapters


To show our commitment to chapters, NIGP has appointed Ambassadors who will visit chapters throughout the year. This face-to-face meeting provides chapter members with an opportunity to hear the latest NIGP member benefits, educational opportunities, resources and tools as well as to ask questions of these individuals. Chapter leaders can share success stories, governance issues, etc. and all stories, thoughts, concerns will be communicated to the elected Member Council of NIGP. Two way communication between the Institute and its chapters at it's best.

Visiting Chapters

Each Chapter will be eligible for ONE visit every other year

Eligible Chapters

will be notified:

  • In October or November for the next calendar year
  • January / February as new officers take office
  • By NIGP staff or the Chapter Ambassador in your area throughout the year

When scheduling your ambassador visit, please allow ample time for the Ambassador to present to your membership as well as time with your board.

In both cases a minimum of I hour is requested.  Once the visit is confirmed with the NIGP Chapter Relations Manager, we encourage you to reach out to the Ambassador as soon as possible to discuss the visit as it pertains to the topic of presentation and time with your chapter.
