We are delighted to provide a wide range of conference sessions that appeal to new and experienced facilitators, project managers and team leaders from across North American and around the world.

The program that we have outlined is designed to provide a firm grounding in the fundamentals of facilitation as well as stretch our skills and imagination with advanced tools and techniques across different sectors of business, education, government and community. See our Program Focus Areas below.

We are reviewing session proposals that fulfill this promise with high quality content and a particular emphasis on a highly interactive learning process.

Our members work in government, nonprofit, educational, community, and corporate environments. They serve as consultants, teachers, in-house facilitators, negotiators, organizational specialists, coaches, and more.

Members have at least one thing in common. They value and use methods of facilitation in their work. Another commonality is the willingness to share ideas, methods and advice.
