2019 Advisory Group

We're thrilled to introduce this year's members.

The 2019 Third Coast Community Conference Advisory Group is:

The 2019 Community Advisory Group is focused on the Third Coast Conference because it is, in many ways, the heartbeat of our organization. However, we’re interested in how the Advisory Group could work with us on other aspects of our programming in the future. Put simply: This is a new experiment for us, and we’re dedicated to continue building on this project in the years to come. We’re honored to be working with this group of people to kick off our first-ever Advisory Group and be part of building the thing itself.

We worked directly with the Community Advisory Group to collaborate on the creation of 2019 Thursday Meetups + other aspects of the Third Coast Conference!

More about the 2019 Advisory Group

At Third Coast, we work year-round to critically examine the structure & organization of the TC Conference, and its role in the audio landscape at large. We want to make that effort more collaborative with you, our community, and to create more meaningful opportunities for producers to guide the work that we do. That's why we created the Advisory Group in 2019.

Our first cohort of the Advisory Group is made up of six individuals working across the audio industry (broadly defined!) are are interested in building community specifically at & round the Third Coast Conference, and who want to engage in thoughtful, challenging dialogue. The 2019 Advisory Group will meet (remotely) together several times throughout the year—both before and after the 2019 Third Coast Conference.

The focus of this year’s Advisory Group is:

  • to better define what community accountability means at the 2019 Third Coast Conference & beyond
  • to apply the lens of community accountability to the 2019 Third Coast Conference in numerous ways, including helping producers connect with one another outside of sessions, refining policies concerning respectful conduct at the Conference, addressing financial accessibility, and more.
  • to take part of Conference programming as facilitators of Thursday Afternoon Meetups (for reference, check out the 2018 Thursday Meetups .)

Advisory Group members serve as liaisons between Third Coast and the producer community before, during, and after the 2019 Conference.
