TechPhx is run entirely by volunteers. Volunteers who love technology and social media. Volunteers who want you to get the most out of your weekend. And we need more!
Organizers and attendees all pitch in together, which makes TechPhx even more unique. The person at the registration booth checking you in, might be the same person you see speaking at a session later on that afternoon.
It truly is YOUR conference, and we could use help in many areas to guarantee that the weekend runs smoothly. From registration, to the very important tasks of setting up and cleaning up each day, we need all hands on deck to ensure that TechPhx is a success!
These are the positions we are hoping to gather volunteers for. Some will require someone to lead the committee, others just volunteers to assist. Decide where your strengths can help us this year. Some committees require more and less time spent depending on time of planning year, so you could even join TWO! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more!
