This is a volunteer-led and run organization and conference. We have eager volunteers working on teams with team leaders and/or project coordinators. Many volunteers peform more than one role and help out various teams as needed during our planning process. We couldn’t have a conference without ALL their help. Some of our volunteers have been with us since the beginning, and we look forward to adding new volunteer help each year. Thank you for volunteering to help put on an exciting conference.

We also couldn’t hold this conference without the support of our partners, Amigos Library Services.
