Event Volunteers

Volunteers are mainly needed to work as ticket takers and ushers; however, volunteers may be asked to perform other duties as needed. All volunteers are required to arrive at the event at 10 am for onsite orientation and setup and are expected to stay until the end of their shift (last shift ends at 5 pm). Volunteers have been selected and applications are now closed. Volunteers receive (1) free admission, (2) TEDxHumboldtBay gift, and (3) free-time during the event.


Coordinators comprise the core leadership team. Along with Curator Laura Montagna and Co-Curator Michael Le, the Coordinators will plan and execute the event. Coordinators are expected to meet 2-4 times per month and work some or all of the event. Meetings are usually Wednesdays from 12pm to 1pm in Arcata. Coordinators will be filled on a rolling basis. Currently, the following Coordinator positions are available:

  • Sponsorship Coordinator
  • Social Media/Marketing Coordinator
  • Experience Coordinator
  • Stage Design Coordinator
  • Logistic Coordinator
  • Speaker Coach (multiple positions available)
