BIR Ambassadors

Help us promote the BIR and become an Ambassador!

You could be the reason someone joins the BIR...

Our members play a key role in recruiting new members through word of mouth recommendation. We know that most join the BIR because a colleague has suggested they do so. As a BIR member, you are already part of the BIR community and will already have experienced the benefits of membership. Could you persuade others to join us too?

Being a BIR Ambassador means you share your experience of what it's like to be a member of the BIR with colleagues, peers and prospective members.

What do Ambassadors do?

BIR Ambassadors represent and promote the BIR in the workplace and at events. How they engage with potential members can vary greatly. They can:

  • Talk to colleagues about the BIR and how it can help to advance their career
  • Run small-scale lunchtime or evening events within your workplace to highlight the work of the BIR
  • Highlight BIR news, events, webinars and awards by forwarding our communications and press releases to colleagues who may be interested
  • Get involved at events such as our Annual Congress and educational courses
  • Give us feedback from colleagues on specific issues
  • Proactively promote the BIR through social networking

What makes a good ambassador?

  • A current BIR member
  • Availability to commit to a minimum of one event per year
  • The drive to introduce at least 3 new members to the BIR per year
  • A passion for the  multidisciplinary ethos of  the BIR
  • Friendly; able to speak to a diverse range of people who all have a professional interest in radiology, radiation oncology and the underlying sciences.

Help and support

The BIR team will give you all the help and support you need to spread the word. We can provide powerpoint presentations, flyers, information and goodies to entice your colleagues to your event.

Why should I apply to be an Ambassador?

As a ‘Thank you’ for being a BIR Ambassador we offer a valuable and simple reward scheme. BIR Ambassadors can earn reward points towards a free registration at our events.

When a colleague joins the BIR, and uses the unique code we will provide you with, we will award you points.

Being an ambassador also provides:

  • The opportunity to network with colleagues and other BIR members
  • An addition to your CV to set you apart from others
  • An invitation to our annual networking event
  • A dedicated BIR member of staff to help answer any questions
  • Regular, relevant communications
