Regional Coordinators

World Sleep Society is working to make this global awareness day even better — with the help of our new Regional Coordinator Volunteers! Due to increasing need for communication with delegates, we are now connecting delegates with Regional Coordinators. When planning an activity in your area, we will now offer volunteers near your geographic region to:

  • Support regional delegates via email, phone, and/or in-person meetings
  • Select top activities within the region to be considered for the 2017 Distinguished Activity Award
  • Distribute press release and other materials
  • Translate materials as needed

Regional Coordinators Available for Contact

For more information, contact us at info@worldsleepsociety.org with “Regional Coordinator” in the subject and your region/location in the body of the email. Please allow 3-5 business days for processing as we forward your request. Ordered by continent, then by last name.
