Who is eligible to be an Ambassador?

GPI investors at the Silver Level and above are invited to participate in the Ambassador Program. The program is open to anyone within a GPI partner company or organization. CEOs and senior leaders are encouraged to designate emerging leaders within their entities to participate. Multiple representatives from the same company may participate in the same events if there is space available. Bronze Level investors will be invited to select Ambassador events.
 

How does it work?

GPI investors will be invited to attend a series of Ambassador events and activities scheduled throughout the year. Registration for events will be on a first come, first served basis. Notice of Ambassador events will be provided through the GPI newsletter, on the GPI website, and email alerts. Number of participants in events may be capped due to space considerations.
 

What does it take to become a “certified” Ambassador?

Participants who attend a minimum of four (4) “certified” designated events will become certified Ambassadors at the end of the year and recognized at a special reception.
 
Our certified Ambassadors will help shape the program in subsequent years as well as be invited to particiate in additional GPI events, speaking engagments, writing blogs and being our go-to advocates on regional economic development issues.
 

What will I get out of being an Ambassador?

Ambassadors have access to unique experiences and networking with influencers, such as asset tours, business development forums, welcome recpetions and more, and will gain insight into critical issues our region faces. Being an Ambassador allows you to be in the know of issues and goings on and speak knowledgably on a range of topics.
 

What are the events that are scheduled?* 

Several Ambassador events and activities are being planned for 2017. Such events include: orientation, open house, familiarization tour forums, Greater Portland 2020 overview, foreign direct investment/launch of nonstop flight to London, economic impact of sports, meet the mayors, and other opportunities.
 
Certain events and activities may have limited slots available for participation. Registration is first come, first served. Participants seeking Ambassador certification will be given preference over general participants if space is limited and there is high demand. 
 

Does it cost me anything to join the Ambassador Program?

There is no fee to participate in the program. If certain events and activities have an associated charge, it will be noted when the invitiation is sent out.
 
*Events are subject to change, based on availability.
