Volunteers

ISOPP needs members who are willing to lend their time and expertise to help lead the Society. There are several ways you can help:

  • Add your name to the ballot for ISOPP elections – a great opportunity for you to put your thoughts and ideas into action.
  • Help identify oncology practitioners who you feel have something to contribute to ISOPP and encourage them to stand in our elections. This will give you a chance to mentor a colleague who may be interested in a leadership role, but is unsure about taking on this opportunity.
  • Recruit a new ISOPP member – this could be a practitioner you know from work, from your travels, or from industry meetings.
  • Volunteer on a Committee, Task Force and Work Group and and help us in our mission to improve care for cancer patients around the world.
