Katie our Volunteer Coordinator

Katie our HONK! Fest West Volunteer Coordinator would LOVE to hear from you!



Below is a list of currently open roles within the Organizing Committee. These positions are distinguished between Committee-level roles and Long-term Volunteer roles. What’s the difference?

  • Committee Roles usually have an increase in responsibility and commitment. They are also expected to attend all regular committee meetings.
  • Long-term Volunteer Roles, aka Super-Volunteers, are usually roles that fit into a planning committee. They are not expected to attend regular meetings of the Organizing Committee and report to a committee level lead. These roles tend to have less responsibility and commitment throughout the year.
