NLP 40th Anniversary
Community Unity Project
August 16–24, 2015

Join us at the University of California in Santa Cruz, California for a gathering that will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of NLP and will inaugurate a global project intended to promote collective intelligence, generative collaboration and cultural intelligence among the current generation of NLP Trainers and Developers.

The aim of the program is to celebrate the past, present and future of NLP. The goal is to invite as many of the original NLP developers and founding group members as possible, as well as current contributors. A key objective of the event is gathering materials to be posted on the new website.

The nine-day conference will have three themes: (1) the Past, (2) the Present and (3) the Future of NLP. The past of NLP will be celebrated by sharing stories of NLP's origins and its roots in the process of modeling. NLP present will be focused on developing methods and strategies for promoting collective intelligence, generative collaboration and cultural intelligence among the current generation of NLP Trainers and Developers. The future of NLP will be organized around coordinating innovative "game changing" applications of NLP to new areas that make a positive difference in the world.

In summary, the purpose of the NLP 40th Anniversary Event is to: Collect, Connect, Contribute, Collaborate and Create. The intention is to gather and align with 1000 NLP Trainers, Master Trainers and Developers to endorse and help to develop the website, which is ultimately to be supported financially by sponsors and member contributions.

The possibilities are endless. Join in creating the future of NLP!
