MACON, Ga. — Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) will select six individuals between the ages of 18 and 22 to serve as GFB Ambassadors at the Georgia National Fair this fall. Ambassadors will work alongside GFB staff assisting in the execution of a membership recruitment campaign. They will help enlist new members by engaging with visitors, answering questions about advocacy, and promoting GFB’s overall mission.
This new program is part of a greater campaign to promote GFB membership to consumers.
“We want Georgians, especially the next generation, to know us as more than just an insurance company,” said Slayten Carter, GFB membership acquisition manager. “We want our story to be told, and our ambassadors will help deliver that message in a new voice.”
Candidates will be chosen based on their interpersonal skills, passion for agriculture advocacy, public speaking ability, and overall enthusiasm. Interested applicants should include a resume and/or cover letter with their application. Enrollment in a college, university, or trade school is preferred but not required.
Each ambassador will work three full days of the fair. The dates include Oct.7-9 and Oct.14-16. In addition to their three days of service, they will also be expected to attend an in-person training session in Macon to prepare for the event. The overall time commitment required for this program will not exceed 40 hours.
For their service, ambassadors will receive a personal letter of recommendation from Georgia Farm Bureau, a polo and t-shirt and a gift of gratitude. Compensation for their lodging and meals during the fair will also be provided.
Applications can be found online at www.gfb.ag/ambassadors. The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m., May 2. Qualified candidates will be contacted for interviews after all applications have been submitted and reviewed.
