Call for Volunteers

On behalf of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig), International Conference Services Ltd. (ICS) is organizing the 14th International Conference of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2018), to be held May 2 – 5, 2018 at the Westin Ottawa Hotel in Ottawa, ON.

The 14th International Conference of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2016) will be a great time and an exciting opportunity for all interested in mesothelioma. To make the Conference a great success we depend on local assistance from 25-30 students and other volunteers with good English language skills.

Volunteers for the 14th International Conference of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2018) will be the first contact for many of the attendees. Their critical role will be to welcome foreign and local participants and to foster a spirit of helpfulness and hospitality. 

We would very much appreciate your assistance in helping to make this Conference a positive and memorable experience for all delegates. Please circulate our call for volunteers, as appropriate, through your institutions.
