Our Volunteer Teams
Since its inception in 2010, TEDxABQ has always been a volunteer-driven organization. Our volunteers do everything from speaker selection, event coordination and volunteer management to marketing, fundraising, and graphic design.
So the next time you see one of our wonderful volunteers, give them a hug. They deserve it.

WHAT IS TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxABQ, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxABQ event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
