TEDxFayetteville Volunteer Form
We are looking for dedicated volunteers to be involved in the planning and execution of TEDx events in Fayetteville. If you are interested, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you shortly.
To participate on the planning committee, we expect volunteers to be willing to attend a monthly meeting, and possibly a weekly meeting in the month leading up to the event if needed.
We also expect that volunteers will complete their work outside of these regular meetings so that the time can be used for updates, questions, and feedback. Being a TEDxFayetteville volunteer means you are committing to this work in the same capacity as though you were being paid. If this is not how you perceive volunteer work, this is not the right project for you.
Volunteers are expected to be willing to ask for help when needed, to know when and how to delegate tasks to others, and to support other members of the planning committee when possible. Planning committee members have the opportunity to lead their own committee if they so need; in such case, members would be expected to be able to adequately manage and recruit their committee.
Planning committee members will need to be well versed in the TEDx rules related to their area of responsibility if selected for that position to ensure sustainability of our event and not compromise our opportunity to host future events.
While we aren't at an official TED event, the TED Code of Conduct for attending events covers things quite nicely. Volunteers agree to adhere to this general code of conduct:
