You will receive an email notification in April alerting you once volunteer team positions available for selection. 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 Forum. We will also conduct one on-site training session before the start of the congress to ensure all volunteers are confident with the facility and their important role in the success of Forum.

The Forum Committee is delighted to invite students and organizations from Zurich and the surrounding area to volunteer at the International Forum on Women’s Brain Health, June 19 – 20 September 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland.

To make the Forum a great success we depend on local assistance from 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 congress.
