2015 Conference Team

Do you know that the TEDxGreenville volunteer conference team works year ’round to design and produce each annual event? The organizer and curator work together to head up six main teams — program, interactive, branding, public relations, event logistics, and sponsorship. Leadership representing each area meets regularly to form the planning team. For more information about what these teams do, visit our Get Involved page. Consider joining us!
