Grants & Volunteering

We don’t wish for the cost of a ticket to be a barrier for anyone to attend. We are able to pass along complimentary tickets to all volunteers and offer opportunity grants based on either financial or diversity based factors thanks of our lovely sponsors.

Registration time is the best time ✨

What’s Included

Your ticket to Ela Conf includes access to the entire event, including:

  • Meals and snacks. We’ll have light refreshments on Friday evening and on Saturday we’ll serve breakfast, lunch, coffee, and snacks.
  • Meet and greet on Friday. We want to make sure there are as few unfamiliar faces at the conference as possible. Join us for this endlessly fun and casual kick off to the event.
  • Networking. We’ll wrap up the conference on Saturday evening with a networking event and “speed dating” to connect with other attendees. Food and drinks on us and our networking event sponsor, Braintree, while they last!
  • Year-long access to our community. All attendees are welcome to join our community including Slack channel where we host remote events throughout the year.
