The Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology (CIFST) is currently recruiting new volunteers to participate in its annual Membership Renewal Drive.

This important team of volunteers will be tasked with contacting 2017 members who have not yet renewed their memberships for 2018 to remind them to do so. The time commitment is typically a total of 4 to 5 hours with a flexible call schedule. The CIFST Renewal Drive will take place through the month of February.

No previous experience is required; you are only required to be a 2018 CIFST member in good standing.

This is a great entry level volunteer opportunity, but it’s also suitable for a veteran volunteer who wants to help out on this important initiative. With this experience, there is the potential to join and participate on other CIFST committees. Also, if you are between jobs, the opportunity can be used as an excellent opportunity to network.

Milana Abramovich has been chairing the Membership Renewal Committee for seven years. If you are interested in getting involved or have any questions, please contact her directly. She can be reached at
