Ok, I'll bite. How many Ambassadors are there? Are there some in other countries too? Give us an idea of the duties please.

As of today there are 45 Ambassadors. This includes all of the Regional Team Leaders, Moderators, and Admins, because they are all still considered to be Ambassadors.

As far as non US Ambassadors, I know we have a couple in Canada, as well as one in France. There could be others, but thats what I can think of right now.

Don't forget the UK, David!

Duties include (but are not limited to) - sending out a minimum of 10 radio requests per month, spending at least one hour a week promoting the band in some way (usually done by participating in Projects), and participating on a Team (usually of your choice).

Also, as a side note, all Ambassadors go through a 90 day probation period. This is so that people have the opportunity to check it all out and see if being an Ambassador is really for them. Is that included in the Ambassador FAQ? I can't remember.

There are roughly 48 Ambassadors worldwide. Most of them are in the US, with a few in Canada and Europe.

To state the obvious we help promote the band buy requesting their songs on local radio stations, video countdown shows, or media surveys. We also help by commentting on articles written about the band/music, and even blog on concerts or music ourselves. We usually have several other ongoing projects and contests we participate in.

During an actual concert, after we are done enjoying the Pups play, we assist with the email signup sheets, crowd control, and various other duties as assigned.

All in all it is a very fun and rewarding experience to be able to share your love of the band with other Ambassadors/World Crew members and achieve the ultimate goal…WORLD DOMINATIN!

How are ambassadors actually chosen? The FAQs say there is a call for screening purposes. Does that mean more than one Admin will call, or just one and then they confer with the rest to reach a decision?


My lifes so pitiful. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all. If there's a reason then I haven't found it yet.

The call is like a job interview, just to get to know you a bit and see why you would like to be an ambassador. You only get ONE call from Admin, and with the information they get from talking to you they will take it to Susanna & other Admin (if I remember right) then make a decision. I hope your thinking about joining us. :biggrin:

Thank you for the information on that.

Yea, I actually sent in my application a few days ago. This band, as well as the Crew, are my life. So to speak. I would love the chance to represent them.

I'm sure Katy will be contacting you soon to set up the phone interview.

Be careful, Katy will chat your ear off. :laugh:

Like Sam said, it's like a job interview phone call. Just tell Katy why you think you'd make a great ambassador. It's also a great time to ask any questions you might have.

I was pretty nervous about the phone call, as I am not great at talking to people I don't know well. But when Susanna called, the nervousness totally went away and we had a great chat! :smile: Hope to see you as an Ambassador soon!

So from what I read, a person needs to accumulate 250 points before applying for an Ambassador position? Is there a place on the board to see your own accumulated points?
