I had a fun time, and it was nice to see all that goes on behind the scenes to make an event like this happen.
Volunteering at The Texas Tribune was a great way to get to know more about the insights of the Austin Community. Here we were split up into multiple groups and assigned specific areas to help assist people going to their committees. I personally volunteered at the shift for panels where many of the volunteers were assigned rooms with designated speakers, and would stand at the doors making sure the event operated smoothly, as well as run the microphones back and forth into the audience if the speaker allowed for open questions. Overall very fun event to attend!
Very insightful political discussions.
The Texas Tribute Festival was one of the most exciting event that I had ever volunteer. Filled with many debate, I was place to help escort the panels to the Texas Union theater and manage the guests for the events.
