Call for Volunteers

Every year, 300 volunteers donate their time to help make the IFLA Congress a success. Volunteers assist on site in a number of areas depending on their interests, including the speakers’ room, media centre, registration, in plenaries, exhibition hall, poster sessions, cultural evenings.

Volunteers are a key to creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere to delegates from all over the world, and assisting the hosts to deliver a professionally run Congress.
