Regional Representatives work on the front lines, across the country, to engage with their community, share resources, and provide support to Guild members in the area. They are nominated and elected into their positions for three-year terms by DG members in their communities, receive an orientation, communicate with Regional Council, and attend monthly meetings with Guild staff. They write three National Reports per year to be published in The Dramatist magazine. They also attend our Annual Meeting.
An extension of the Regional Rep program, Ambassadors have less formal responsibility than Regional Reps, but inform the work we do in similar ways. In more densely populated regions, they may assist the local Regional Rep in their responsibilities. They also may be stationed in far-reaching areas of a region that might be difficult for a Regional Rep to travel to, or in a geographic area of the country that does not have a Regional Rep.
