Volunteers for IUFRO World Congress 2014

Hi everyone!

IUFRO World Congress 2014 will be held in Salt Lake City (5-11 October 2014). IFSA is actively involved with the congress preparations and student event planning. We (me and head of IFSA-IUFRO World Congress Association Lisa Hansen) are now looking for IFSA-students (and IFSA alumni) who are willing to work as volunteers at the congress. Volunteer task will range from event organization with IUFRO to manning the IFSA booth (details to follow later in the year). We won’t be able to provide financial aid, however, we’ll give each volunteer letters of support that can be used to seek funding. IUFRO World Congress is a one-of-a-kind scientific forestry meeting, and I strongly encourage every forestry student to consider attending! 🙂
