Participant Networking Data Collection

Please introduce yourself to the other 130 Summitarians:

Step One:

Please send us, by March 20, a 150-word write-up about your background, interests, and passions (similar to the speakers' and panelists' bios). To make networking even easier, we will publish it for other Summitarians to see before the event and in the Handbook (please put your name, any degrees you want shown and your city and state on the first line.)

Once we have received your information, you will be given the location to see what others have written about themselves.

Step Two:

Instead of giving you a list of who was at the Summit after the event, we're giving it to you before and during the event, on a special webpage that only Summitarians can access, and in the Handbook. The password will be mailed to you upon reciept of your registration.

Listed are all participant's names, organizations, cities, states and email addresses (we decided not to publish the phone numbers because there was not time to check with you first). Please check that your data are listed correctly--email any changes to corrections@atlc.org.

We will list phone numbers in the Handbook, so if you have any private numbers you don't want published (that you may have listed on your registration form), please let us know at corrections@atlc.org and we will suppress them.

Password protection helps keep your email address secure from web crawlers. If you want to phone people, please email them and ask for their number.

Your first access to the webpage requires your agreeing not to use any data for mailing lists or other commercial purposes.

Use the link at right "Participant Networking Area" to access the list.

Step Three (optional):

You may submit for the Summit Handbook, up to a page (500 words) describing your vision for making bonding and attachment priorities in N. America and how the Summit might help fulfill it. Include what you have to offer other Summitarians and describe any projects of yours that can enhance bonding and attachment in North America.

Step Four (optional):

We encourage you to start networking now, both privately and through the discussion list.

Summit Bookstore (optional):

If you are an author of a book, audio, or video, please submit the title, author, publisher, and ISBN number to Jack by March 14 and from whom it is available so our bookstore manager can stock it (you can reply to this email). If your book(s) is/are not readily available through wholesale channels, or the deadline has passed, please bring copies with you for consignment sales.


Dress: casual.

Fragrance Free Zone

Out of respect for those who are chemically sensitive, please do not wear any perfumes, colognes, or essential oils on the grounds.

Being Present for the Whole Summit

We know people like to come late and leave early, but this would be very disruptive to the intensive process of the Summit. Please arrive no later than 6pm on Thursday and stay through the closing ceremony at 3 on Sunday. You are welcome to join the orientation Café Circle with the speakers and panelists at 2pm on Thursday.
