This strawman provides a starting point for your internal discussions of what your organization hopes to achieve with the summit.  We recognize that each group's needs and priorities will be different.  Ideally this discussion will allow internal champions to see the broad contributions possible from the experience and why the investment will deliver value.


Download     Summit FAQ.doc
This template for an FAQ can be personalized and shared as early as possible with the customer service team.  As people in the community begin to hear about the event, it will be important to have your first responders know what is happening.  The entire process should be transparent even if there is not room for every interested resident to participate.
