The Digital Presence Committee oversees all of NCME’s digital initiatives, including the work of the Social Media and Website Committees. This year, Social Media and Digital Presence have worked with the NCME Board to introduce the new Social Media Ambassadors program.

Here is the description of this new role from the charter:

Social Media Ambassadors … are graduate student or professional members who create social media posts but may also serve on other NCME committees. 

To have high visibility, social media accounts need to remain active and engage followers throughout the year. Engaging active graduate student members in the creation of social media content will enhance our activity and visibility. We are excited to have a team of new Ambassadors to build our social media activity and to spread important NCME-related news and discussions.

Our first Social Media Ambassador is Thao Vo (pictured to the left), a graduate student at Washington State and chair of the Graduate Student Issues Committee (GSIC).

If you are (or know of) a graduate student who is interested in supporting the mission of NCME through social media presence, please contact the Digital Presence chair, Joni Lakin (
