iMig 2018 - Call for Volunteers

Call for Volunteers

The International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig) is delighted to invite students and organizations from Ottawa and the surrounding area to volunteer at the 14th International Conference of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2018), to be held May 2 – 5, 2018 at the Westin Ottawa Hotel, Canada.

To make the Conference a great success we depend on local assistance from approximately 25 students or other volunteers with good English language skills. Volunteering is a great learning experience, and an opportunity to network, and to acquire insight into the operations of an international conference. 

Volunteers for iMig 2018 are the first contact for many of the attendees. Their critical role is to welcome foreign participants and to foster a spirit of helpfulness and hospitality.


In return for volunteer services, iMig 2018 gladly offers the following benefits:
  • Complimentary food & beverage during volunteer shifts
  • A certificate of participation
  • Complimentary registration when a minimum of 3 shifts of 8 hours are confirmed throughout the conference
Upon confirmation of local volunteers, a volunteer training manual will be provided to each individual. The volunteer manual outlines all of the responsibilities associated with their assigned roles and their scheduled volunteer shifts during the conference. We will also conduct one on-site training session before the start of the conference to ensure all volunteers are confident with the facility and their important role in the success of iMig 2018.
