The winners of the ADEA Connect Ambassador Incentive Award have been officially announced. The winners were chosen across three ADEA membership categories: Regular membership, Allied membership and Student membership. 

The incentive program was created to encourage ambassadors to support the goals of the Ambassador program, which are to:

  • Help ADEA Connect be a consistent resource for ADEA members to gain knowledgeable and helpful information.
  • Ensure ADEA Connect is a fun and lively community that represents its members.
  • Raise awareness of their community in ADEA Connect by getting more peers involved.

Each activity performed on ADEA Connect is measured in engagement points.  The winners logged into the ADEA Connect platform, downloaded and/or created documents, and created and/or replied to discussion posts during the incentive period of Sept. 19 through Dec. 16, 2022. 

The six winners will all receive free registration to the 2023 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Portland, OR from March 11-14, 2023. The winners in the Student Membership category will also receive free Apple iPods.
