Alzheimer's Association Community Representatives (AACR) assist the Alzheiemr's Association volunteer team in meeting the community needs by representing the Alzheimer's Association at health and wellness fairs.
AACRs must be organized, energetic, comfortable with public speaking and enjoy interacting with others. AACRs need not have professional experience in dementia care, though some personal experience is preferable.
Above all, AACRs must keep in mind that while serving in this role, they are representing the Alzheimer's Association and no other organization. To avoid issues of conflict of interest, AACRs may not work in organiztions or programs that are potential Assocation rererral sources.
