Update: All the planning committee volunteer positions have been filled. We are still looking for volunteers to work under some committee roles or to assist our series of promotional events.
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.
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: https://www.ted.com/attend/conferences/registration-policies/code-of-conduct
