Volunteer Coordinator Starts Work

Well over 100 volunteers are already working hard throughout the world to ensure that 8ICML runs smoothly and to make a it success. During the conference itself next year, many more volunteers will be needed to register delegates, act as stewards, set up furniture in lecture rooms and so on. It is hoped that the core of the congress crew will consist of staff from the BMA library, which expects to be closed for redecoration during the week of ICML, but there will also be an extended need for other volunteers.

To make sure that everything run’s smoothly, Jane Smith has agreed to take on the onerous task of coordinating the volunteer effort. Jane is deputy librarian at the British Medical Association and a member of the committee of the UK Health Libraries Group. She has joined the main organising committee.
