Thank you for your interest in supporting TEXSOM as a conference team member.

The application period is now closed.  Applications are being reviewed and applicants will be notified whether their volunteer participation can be accommodated, prior to opening registration.  TEXSOM strives to offer support to our volunteers through meals, exclusive learning opportunities and direct mentorship.  Due to the overwhelming support of you and so many industry professionals, TEXSOM unfortunately has been unable to accommodate all applicants the past couple of years.

It is a special type of wine professional that volunteers at TEXSOM. Our team exemplifies the goals of the conference with professionalism, high standards, eagerness to learn, willingness to contribute, and most of all, camaraderie. There is a special sense of self-worth, work ethic, and a strong sense of integrity that can only be gained by being in the trenches with your fellow volunteers. It is truly the professionalism, dedication and willingness of our team members that makes it possible for us to host the most successful sommelier gathering in the world. No other wine event has such an enthusiastic and hard-working group of top wine professionals collaborating to bring a superior experience to attendees.

Along with the hard-work come benefits as well — you’ll have the opportunity to network with the most experienced leaders in the beverage service industry, learn from world-renowned speakers, gain experience in event planning and execution, and make long lasting friends and memories.

Whether you participate as a volunteer or an attendee, we look forward to seeing you in August for early days and late nights, many world-class
beverages, and superior educational opportunities!
