Thank you for your interest to join our esteemed Board of Advisors.
In essence the role of our Board is to help TEDxMarin:
- Identify and unearth amazing speakers to approach. Our Executive speaker team follows up
- Assist us in attracting interesting start-ups to showcase at our live events.
- Help us in creating a compelling theme and topics for the annual show and Salons.
- Inviting beloved colleagues to join our member INVITEE list (free).
- * Securing in your initial year- a base level of sponsorship and underwriting support to help sustain our event series.
If accepted to our Board, you are listed as an advisor on website, get special badging and complimentary admission to all our events AND are invited to private Board get-togethers. There are no meetings to attend per se. We primarily work via private emails for direct feedback and voting on possible themes etc.
We seek open-minded, fun, connected, socially active individuals from a broad set of industries and talents. We desire folks comfortable with helping to curate a great attendee list to our events. Sense of Humor is highly appreciated. We seek new Board Members which compliment not overlap existing Board strengths.
* NOTE: All new Board members are asked to commit to secure at least $2,500 of underwriting support in their initial calendar year one way or another. After the first year you, you help as you can.
The Board of Advisors do not ever “book” the speakers, but rather advise THE SPEAKER TEAM (Executive Board) about potential great ones.
If you have questions call the office at 415-785-8873 and/or send an email to Bob Ayres at Producer @ TedxMarin dot ORG.
