When you volunteer at the annual JEN conference, you become part of the family. Offering your time and skills is a tremendously meaningful and selfless step in serving the jazz community.

As an organization, we operate with only two full-time staff and a small number of part-time staff. Most of our annual and conference activities are handled by our dedicated volunteers. Each year, we look for dedicated members of the jazz community with a variety of skill sets to dedicate their time at the annual conference. YOU could be just what we’re looking for.
