Volunteer Applications are currently OPEN for the 2022 Conference.

As an organization, we operate with only one full-time staff and a small number of part-time staff–most of our annual and conference activities are handled by our dedicated volunteers. We’re looking for dedicated members of the jazz community with a variety of skill sets to dedicate their time at the annual conference.

Thank you to everyone who volunteers to help make this the best conference yet!

Our volunteer opportunities offer a spirit of collaboration to a new generation of open minds.

Jazz is Life
