Each year, there are a number of community organizations looking for RMT's to help them provide massage therapy for wellness days, post-event massage for sporting events, walks, runs, and a host of other great opportunities.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, earn education credits, reach potential new clients and for that great feeling you get when you give back! Check back often to see who needs your help...


WHERE: RBC Convention Centre

WHEN: October 2-5th 2019

 

Between October 2 -5, 2019 , Winnipeg will play host to the 2019 Diabetes Canada/Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) Professional Conference. This conference will bring together approximately 1700 guests from throughout the province and across Canada! Together the participants will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, learn, grow and network with like-minded colleagues who share an interest in improving the lives of people living with diabetes and other endocrinology disorders.

An event of this magnitude requires many hands to ensure it can be the best learning opportunity possible. In order to have that impact we are looking at recruiting 120 volunteers to ensure everything runs smoothly. We are reaching out to you today with hopes that you may consider volunteering yourself and perhaps engaging family, friends and colleagues to join you for this event.  

A famous quote by John Heyword never rang more true than now ,  “Many hands make light work”

Below is the Volunteer Survey Monkey Link to complete with your interest and availability.  We would like to secure 90% of our recruitment by the end of Aug. 2019 so don’t delay.  If will be a great opportunity to be part of the health outcomes for Canada…Thank you for joining us and we look forward to meeting you.

Also please note if you do register you could also let us know as well, we’d appreciate it.
