EVENT UPDATE: Our ENGAGE: Deeply Event is Postponed

TEDxCalgary has made the difficult — but very necessary — decision to postpone our planned ENGAGE: Deeply event until October 31, 2020.

The spread of coronavirus/COVID-19 infections is a very real threat to all of us, and our risk assesments determined that our event was not appropriate to hold at this juncture, while modes of infection for the virus remain uncertain. In alignment with guidance being issued by health authorities, the City of Calgary, and now by the Government of Alberta, we voluntarily chose a course of action that we feel will best protect the health of our participants, speakers, and volunteers.

Individuals holding tickets are now being communicated with directly by email. We will continue to update the public via our website as we revise our plans for the new October 31st date. If you're a current ticket-holder looking to have your purchase refunded, please visit our events refund page for additional details and instructions.

Our thanks to our partners, speakers, and volunteers for all of their guidance and support as we made this decision, and we look forward to meeting our participants in person at ENGAGE: Deeply (Take 2) in Fall 2020.

Volunteer

TEDxCalgary Volunteers

Our efforts are completely powered by volunteer energy!

If you're looking for a rewarding volunteer experience with a team that lives and breathes ideas, we're the place for you. Here's how we engage volunteers:

 

1. Tell us about you

However we make our initial contact, we ask that you complete our online volunteer form to help make sure we've got your basic contact information, and get to know a little more about you.

 

2. Align your interests

We have a number of different roles to offer, from helping out on event days to supporting parts of our year-round operations (marketing, communications, technology, logistics, partnerships, and so on). Our volunteer team will meet with you in person to go deeper on what you'd like to do, and what opportunities might fit.

 

3. Grow with us

As we better get to know one another, there are many possibilities to move across roles, or to become a portfolio leader. Start the journey and see where it takes you!
