Apply to join a committee

We’re hard at work planning the 2020 event and working hard to improve all aspects of GiveCamp Memphis. GiveCamp Memphis 2020 will be the 9th year of our event, and it has long since outgrown the organizational setup originally created by Adam Robertson and me. To help GiveCamp Memphis prepare for its future, we’ve created a Steering Committee. Our upcoming event’s Steering Committee is Adam Robertson, Brian Swanson, Mike Cochran, Nicole Lewandowski, and Lance Hilliard. The Steering Committee will oversee other committees with the goal of a successful event in the coming year and beyond.

Some of you might be interested in joining one of the committees to help out. We are accepting applications to the committees now. There is limited room on each committee, and applying does not guarantee acceptance. Also, appointments to committees expire following each year’s event – apply each year. The membership of the Steering Committee is self-managed, influenced by those demonstrating a year-after-year commitment to event planning and success.

Expect a response within 2-3 weeks of applying
  • All of our committee coordination is via #memtech Slack. https://www.memphistechnology.org
