Behind the scenes—and how you can be part of our 2020 event

If you’ve ever attended TEDxBoise, you know exactly how much fun it is.


There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to create a terrific experience for those who attend TEDxBoise. We have an all-volunteer team of talented individuals who lend their expertise to make your time with us unforgettable. Learn more about the people who craft the attendee experience and the set, manage our web presence, coach our speakers, communicate through social media and oversee talk translation, recruit entertainment and direct what happens on stage, coordinate day-of volunteers, and foster your opportunity to mingle with speakers at the after party. Plus, our event director and event producer who tirelessly shepherd the planning team and work to ensure our event complies with the TED guidelines.

Several of our core team members “retired” from the TEDxBoise crew after our 2019 event. Rachael Moyer and Christian Carley have begun new adventures in other parts of the country and world, respectively. Nancy Buffington is still working in the Boise area, and will continue to serve on our board of directors, but has turned over the speaker coaching reins to our other coach, Kirsten Holmberg. Each of them will be missed deeply and have our sincerest gratitude.
