Contribute. Be heard. Make a difference.
You can do all of these things and more by joining a TBTF volunteer committee. Participation does not take much time at all and committees are open to all employees of TBTF members.
Peer Network Steering Committees
Each of the TBTF Peer Networks is governed by a Steering Committee comprised of Network participants. These Committees meet at least twice per year to plan Network meetings including the selection of speakers/topics. If you are currently participating in a Peer Network, inquire about opportunities to serve on the Steering Committee.
Awards Gala Committee
The Industry Achievement Awards Gala is held in November and draws approximately 400 attendees. The planning committee meets a handful of times and helps to come up with the theme, judges, decorations and other fun elements to add to the event.
For information about these committees, please contact Kimberly Wander.

Tech Jam Committee
The Tech Jam Committee plans all aspects of this "Summer Party With A Purpose” - with all proceeds to benefit the youth in our community through the TBTF Foundation.
