Regarding Ambassadors with physical challenges or disabilities:

Every effort will be made to allow participation by Ambassadors with physical challenges. Regardless of a volunteer’s physical capabilities, she/he must be able to communicate verbally in a clear and concise manner in order to best assist conference attendees. A variety of tasks will require Ambassadors to walk great distances, so if movement is a challenge, a stationary job will be assigned.
