Volunteers

Call for volunteers is closed

The call for volunteers for WCPT Congress 2019 closed on 4th January 2019.

Benefits of volunteering

Volunteers will work as an essential part of the team to ensure congress runs smoothly and all delegates have an enjoyable and memorable time in Switzerland, and will receive:

  • a limited edition volunteer t-shirt
  • access to the volunteer lounge during volunteer shifts
  • light refreshments and snacks during volunteer shifts
  • possibility of attending scientific sessions after completing a minimum of five hours of volunteering on the same day (subject to space)
  • a congress certificate confirming hours volunteered
  • an invitation to the volunteer thank you reception

Additional information

  • Volunteers will primarily be recruited from Switzerland, as a very important part of the role is answering questions from congress delegates about Switzerland (e.g. “How do I get to xxx”, “Where is the nearest xxx”, “How do I find xxx”).
  • If volunteers wish to attend the congress on any day other than the day they are scheduled to volunteer, they must register as a congress delegate at the regular rate (registration will open in July 2018).

In general, the services of volunteers coming from outside Switzerland will only be accepted if they are registered as a delegate and attending the congress for at least one day. No special benefits are offered to volunteers coming from other countries (e.g. volunteers are responsible for their own accommodation, food and transport costs).
