Help Make Process Palooza 2023 a Reality 

Complete the Volunteer Interest Form!

It takes a cast of thousands (well, a couple dozen at least!) to pull off Process Palooza. If you'd like to join our ranks, fill out our volunteer interest form. We need people to serve year round on our planning committee for roles like sponsorship, event management, and programming. Also take a look at the specific needs listed below. Our volunteers all receive a limited-edition Process Palooza t-shirt and gift bag!

Conference Planning

The Process Palooza planning committee is seeking enthusiastic partners to join the fun! We’re searching for team members interested to engage, collaborate, and help to host UC San Diego's 5th Annual continuous improvement and business excellence celebration, in March 2023. We're looking for a team of volunteers that will inform venue selection, create schedule tracks, arrange and manage speakers and workshop leaders, work with the Volunteer Lead and manage Thank You gifts/messages.

For those unfamiliar, Process Palooza is hosted in support of campus leadership and provides conference attendees with an opportunity to experience, learn about, and grow continuous improvement. We invite those interested to reach out to fill out our volunteer interest form.

Competition Process Lead

The Process Palooza competition planning committee is seeking an individual to assist with the development of the competition process packets. The Process Palooza competition brings together Lean Six Sigma-trained teams that compete to improve UC San Diego processes. These processes are submitted by campus departments and they require the participation of the Process Palooza competition planning team to prepare the process packets. This preparation includes meeting with the submitting department, compiling process data provided, writing a process narrative and finalizing the packet to provide to the competitors. The Competition Process Lead will ideally join the competition planning team in January or February 2022 and will help select the processes prior to assisting in preparing the competition packets. Additionally, this individual should have a background in LSS and a familiarity with the DMAIC process. This volunteer role will be needed through March 2023. If interest submit the volunteer interest form!

Sponsorship and Vendor Expo

Process Palooza relies on sponsorship investment from the business community and campus vendors and recharge units. We’re looking for outgoing individuals who can market Process Palooza as a way to increase customer engagement. As the event approaches, and during the event, we’ll also need help managing logistics of the vendor expo. Fill out the volunteer interest form if this is a good fit for you!
