One privilege of FIGT membership is the opportunity to volunteer and contribute to the growth of this fantastic organisation

Without the time, skills, dedication, commitment and belief in FIGT’s mission of our Board of Directors and other invaluable volunteer members, FIGT would not be what it is. From planning our Annual Conference, to managing the day-to-day operations of the organization, it is the people behind the scenes that make the difference and gain the most.

Opportunities exist at either Board or Committee level. Board vacancies are announced each year in April when members are invited to apply for the vacant positions. Committee positions are more dynamic and members may become involved as volunteers at any time during the year but are particularly welcome as we prepare for the annual conference.

Committee Positions

Committee positions become available year round and include: Communications, Program, Logistics, Nominations, Scholarship, Finance, Sponsorship and Membership. Specifically, we are looking for individuals with background and interest in:

  • Program management
  • Event organization
  • Website design and management
  • Writing and/or editing
  • Social media management
  • Budget and finance
  • Strategic relationship building
  • Membership relations
  • Communicating with a diverse group of individuals across multiple geographic locations

We would love to hear from you if you are a current member of FIGT or plan to join the organisation as a member and are willing to offer your enthusiasm, skills, and expertise to support our mission to “promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success and well-being of people crossing cultures around the world.”

Please complete the brief online form or e-mail

We will be in touch to talk about your interest and to let you know about any opportunities. If we do not have any appropriate roles available at this point, we will let you know and with your permission keep your details on file for use as and when new opportunities arise.

Vacancies that we are unable to fill from our volunteer pool are advertised on social media.

If you have questions about becoming a member don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Membership Director at
