Four Points Sheraton Hotel, Schiller ParkIL (next to O’Hare)
September 16 & 17, 2008
A forum for organizations and institutions to come together to discuss ways to collaborate on matters of common interest
Transform Conversation to Action
Expect to contribute ideas, find synergy with others, and come out with a collective plan for action.
Imagine the possibilities
Develop new alliances to benefit the experiential/adventure world in the areas of public policy and the research we need to show that our programs and methodologies are effective.
Join the Conversation
None of us is as strong as all of us—we know this and teach it on a daily basis. It’s time for us to live it.
Why are we doing this? To develop new alliances to benefit the experiential/adventure world
The experiential world’s issues are complex and difficult for a single organization to tackle. However, by working together, our achievements will be greater than our individual efforts. Imagine how many people we represent when you consider our collective staffs plus the numbers of participants whose lives we have touched. We all work on our own issues, in our own ways, but this is a time to imagine what we can accomplish together and how we can build our collective influence to sustain and expand our programs.
Summit participants will come up with strategies to transform conversation to action. Expect to contribute ideas, find synergy with others, and come out with a collective plan to move us forward. We can make a difference in our world in ways that will draw attention to the benefits of experiential and adventure programming and expand our influence. We will identify the unique assets of each organization and institution present and how they can best contribute to this whole, as well as places where those who cannot be present can join in afterwards.
Take a leadership role in building a better world. Participate in collaborative crafting of principles, guidelines, and actions to create an agenda to move forward.
Come to the Summit!
