HudsonAlpha Ambassadors is an awareness-building program made up of community leaders dedicated to raising HudsonAlpha’s profile within their personal, professional and philanthropic networks. This group is comprised of business and civic leaders who are introduced to different research areas, educational programs and economic development opportunities at the Institute through quarterly meetings.  Ambassadors support HudsonAlpha’s mission in several ways, including financial contributions, sponsorships and public relations.

Ambassadors are a highly respected group of advocates who help carry the Institute’s message to the public and offer personal perspectives on the work conducted by HudsonAlpha researchers and educators. Ambassadors also provide insight and suggestions toward growing the nonprofit institute.
