At The Asatru Community we are always trying to improve the programs we already have,such as gatherings, events, the magazine, community out reach etc, but beyond this, we also try to bring new programs and projects to our members.
So, I am proud to announce the beginnings of a new program/ project. The Ambassador Program. The goal of the Ambassador Program, from here on to be referred to as AP, is simple, however getting there may be a bit more complicated.
The AP project is designed to help local communities grow events under the TAC banner. Run by selected volunteers (see list of requirements), the AP project will assist local heathens by: creating a main local contact through which events will be co-ordinated. The AP will be the lead contact for events within the area. Events can range from simple pub moots to full out festivals…and everything in between.
The AP is responsible for hosting at least 1 open event per year. What do we mean by open? It must be an event that is open to the public, and not restricted to only charter members of TAC. The AP must provide the full details of the intended event to TAC so that TAC can assist in advertising the event through our public relations and advertising departments. The advertising will be made available to the AP for use on their own websites or in print.
The AP would be to report back the event results. What does that mean? AP’s would be asked to provide TAC with a basic head count and anonymous feedback of the event, taken through a simple comment form to enable the constant growth and improvement of events. This way we can also make sure that the ambassadors are making an effort in their area and with each event, we can see how the community grows and reacts. Additional Duties and Responsibilities will be determined on the skills and desires of the applicants.
AP’s would be able to take applications for charter membership within their local area and during events. The applications would be forwarded to TAC for final approval. Application forms will be made available for AP’s via print and online use.
To become an Ambassador, you must
A. Be a Charter Member
B. Go through an application and interview process by The Council.
C. Pass a criminal background check. Applicants must provide a valid copy of a simple background check that would be made available to TAC. We will be checking this as part of the process. We will not accept any applicant that has committed a felony act, violent offenders, persons arrested for or serving time for domestic violence, or persons currently serving time at a correctional facility. (TAC reserves the right to check the Sex Offender Registry on all applicants, even if they have nothing listed on a background check)
D. Have reliable transportation or access to transportation of some kind.
*We will not accept applicants who are deemed to be unsafe to the general public by any government institution.
Volunteers who are approved will then go on to become Ambassadors, responsible for a specific area determined by number of applicants.
This program will not work without you, the community. The AP program has the potential to create a greater network of local heathens who will go on to form strong roots, maybe even form kindreds. The potential is limitless.
If community is what you seek, we seek to help provide it to you. Our TAC Ambassadors, would help bring TAC to you, and your community.
