This year's Summit was a huge success. If you didn't get a chance to attend, you can still experience the Summit with our conference proceedings CD. This CD contains 14 audio recordings from the Featured Presentations, Keynotes and New Perspective Talks and 10 presentation books with hundreds of pages. Read more about the CD on the CD Proceedings Page.
We're already planning for the 2010 Summit and will announce the dates and location in the fall of 2009.
