State Ambassadors represent NAIE at the local level and connect with state leaders in education, deaf education specialists, as well as the educational interpreting community to help promote the mission of NAIE. State Ambassadors also seek out opportunities in their respective states to represent NAIE and share resources with the community.

**UPDATE JUNE 2021** 

NAIE is currently going through restructuring and at this time we are not accepting new applications for State Ambassador leadership. During this temporary period, current State Ambassadors can still be contacted by members.
