Special Membership Status
What is an InterNations Ambassador?
The title of InterNations Ambassador is a special membership status awarded to InterNations members who strongly support our concept and are particularly well-connected within their Community. The InterNations Ambassador is an honorary position for committed volunteers, who are enthusiastic about furthering the development of our Local Communities. Their special membership status can be compared to the role of a virtual mayor, and they serve as first point of contact for members of their community. InterNations Ambassadors organize and host high-quality Events in order to offer our members a great experience and a welcoming environment to network not only online but also in real life.
Feel free to check out more about our Ambassadors here!

What administrative capabilities do I have as Ambassador?
Ambassadors are authorized to take care of their Local Community area at their own discretion. Therefore, Ambassadors are awarded special administrative rights on the local level; they monitor their Local Forum in a fairly comprehensive manner, they can create Events, and they may invite all members of their Community to the Official InterNations Events.
How can I get in touch with the Ambassador of my Local Community?
To get in touch with the Ambassador of your Local Community simply go to your Local Community Team page located here. On this page, you can see a list of the Ambassadors for your current InterNations Community and can simply message / contact them directly.
How can I get in touch with an Ambassador from a different InterNations Community?
To get in contact with an Ambassador from a different InterNations Community, you can temprarily change your InterNations Community by using the 'Community Selector'. This can be found in the top left-hand corner of the webpage next to the InterNations logo where your current community will already be listed in yellow. By clicking on the drop-down arrow, you will see a list of InterNations Communities that are close to you or you may search for a community by entering the name of the location in the search box. Once you have selected a new InterNations community, simply go to your Local Community Team page located here.
What is a Group Consul?
InterNations Consuls run our Groups and organize regular Activities. They also monitor the wall, upload pictures, and promote Activities in their groups. They are the main contact person for other members in their Community who want to partake in a certain activity.
Each Group focuses on a specific type of interest or activity, such as dining, biking, photography, dancing, or professional networking. This allows members to easily get in touch with other people who share their interests and meet up on a regular basis. At the same time, they offer a more intimate environment than our larger Official Events.

If you notice a group that currently does not have a Consul, you can apply to become the group’s Consul by clicking on Apply now! in the bottom left corner of the group overview.
Otherwise, if you would like to become part of the Consul team for an existing group, please contact the current Group Consul(s).
You are also welcome to get in touch directly with our Groups Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information about the Consul role or to apply for a vacant position.
Why can other members create Activities in my Group?
Sometimes an InterNations member may have a great idea for a one-time Activity or an Activity that would fit perfectly within the theme of your group. In these cases, it does not warrant the opening of an entirely new group, which is why the members of your group are also able to create individual Activities. However, you as the Consul have the right to delete any Activity if you deem it inappropriate for your group. In this case, please inform the host about your decision.
Can a Group have more than one Group Consul?
Each Group can have a team of up to three Consuls. The existing Consuls have the right to invite their contacts to join the team.
