Join forces with a diverse group of Monmouth County individuals from business and industry, arts and culture, education, science and technology, environment, medical and pharmaceuticals, faith-based, media, government, and philanthropy for intentional and action-oriented cross-sector discussions.  


2-day Open Space Convening—not your typical conference—no presentations—no power-point!




  • Every issue of concern to anybody will be raised;
  • All issues will receive full discussion to the extent desired;
  • A full report of all discussions will be produced;
  • There will be time for action planning.  


Bring your passion and creativity . . . and be ready to be surprised


A commitment to attending both days of the convening is essential for your registration to be accepted.  Space is limited.  If you find that your schedule changes and you are not available to attend both days, please release your reservation so we may fill your slot with an individual on the waiting list.  Thank you.
