Welcome to the XX ISA World Congress of Sociology Ambassador Portal!

Thank you for your assistance with promoting the XX ISA World Congress of Sociology. We appreciate you volunteering your time as a Congress Ambassador.

Please find ideas and resources below to assist you with promoting the Congress.


Practical Ideas for Promoting the Congress

As a Congress Ambassador, your assistance would be appreciated to:

  • Actively promote the Congress to your international and/or national network of industry colleagues to increase general awareness of the Congress;
  • Develop relationships with affiliated associations within your country/region willing to promote the Congress; and
  • Seek organisations within your networks to promote the Congress.

A subtle approach can be very effective in promoting WCS 2023 within your field. It is about identifying suitable opportunities and working in partnership with the WCS 2023 Managers, who are available to support you by providing assistance when needed.

Some practical ideas for promoting WCS 2023 are:

  • Correspondence: Include the WCS 2023 electronic signature in your emails. Templates are available on the Ambassadors’ Online Portal.
  • Attendance at meetings and events: Talk about WCS 2023 to your network and use the WCS 2023 virtual backgrounds and promotional slides where possible. You can also put the WCS 2023 Managers in contact with the organisers of the events you attend, to discuss marketing collaboration opportunities.
  • Speaking at meetings and events: If you are invited to speak at an industry event, take flyers or use PowerPoint slides to promote WCS 2023. Slides are available on the Ambassadors’ Online Portal. If the meeting is held virtually, use one of the WCS 2023 virtual backgrounds available on the portal.
  • Email marketing: The WCS 2023 Managers will be periodically distributing email marketing campaigns, which you can forward onto your colleagues and industry peers.
  • PR and media: If you identify an opportunity to have an article published in an industry publication, please mention WCS 2023, or discuss PR collaboration opportunities with the WCS 2023 Managers.
  • Conversation: Discuss WCS 2023 with colleagues and industry peers.
  • Social media: Interact with the various WCS 2023 social media channels where possible. This includes sharing posts to your network and engaging with the content on Facebook and Twitter
