Stay tuned for updates as well as a List of Job Descriptions as we still need Volunteers!!!  We are also still seeking Leaders in the Creative and Processing/Print areas.  And we need Photographers, Videographers, Event Photographers, and anyone who would like to help us with welcoming, signing in and escorting participants through the event.  WE NEED YOU!!! Please spread the word and the LOVE!!!  Thanks!

A super huge heart felt thanks to Dale Nabeta for sending over some awesome Behind the Scenes photos from our Berkeley Event! ENJOY!!! You can download images directly from the gallery!!! Anyone else have some BTS???

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all well!  I am wrapping things up and I wanted to hear from all volunteer photographers who were at the HP Event in Berkeley who took BTS photos.  Please be sure to send me the files as I need to send everything to HP ASAP!  I have fallen behind and I am under pressure.  Thanks everyone!!!!  You are all so FAB!!!
