Associate Board of Ambassadors

What is the ABOA?

The Capital Region’s Associate Board of Ambassadors (ABOA) is a group of rising community leaders who share the belief of The American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

What does it take to be on the ABOA?

  • Join a subcommittee: Silent Auction, Social Events, Marketing & Communications or Sponsorship & Underwriting
  • Commit to raising a minimum of $1,000
  • Attend bi-monthly board meetings
  • Be a champion for the American Cancer Society in the Capital Region

Interested In Joining The ABOA?

Let’s Be Social!

Anyone and everyone is invited to attend our bi-monthly social events!  Each event is planned by the ABOA with the goal of bringing the community together to network, learn something about the American Cancer Society’s mission and raise funds.  Each event will be different from the activity to the price and the location so please check our calendar regularly for updates!
