The Burning Man Regional Summit is being held April 3-6, 2014. Community members are encouraged to apply; plus Ignition / Red Shirts are eligible for a $300 reimbursement!
The requirements for reimbursement include submitting receipts along with giving a presentation on a useful “takeaway” from the event that you would like to bring back to the community from this conference.
The Burning Man Global Leadership Conference (GLC) is not a party. It’s not like that thing out in the desert or like our regional event. The GLC is four days of intensive leadership training. You are in classes beginning at 8am that go until 6pm and then you are taken to see different happenings and Burner spaces around the area. You get to meet lots of exciting people who are doing inspiring things, but you are expected to buckle down and put your brain to work. By the end of the process you will feel full of amazing information and completely drained at the same time.
Burning Man charges a fee to attend the conference. It will probably be $100-$150 and you will need to be able to turn this in by the registration deadline (The deadline should be around the beginning to middle of February). You will need to provide your own transportation to and from the GLC Conference and you will need to pay for your own lodging and most of your own meals.
We are asking that anyone picked to attend the GLC will sum up the knowledge that they gained at the conference and teach a workshop.
The application deadline is
Sat Jan 18th at Noon Friday, January 10th at 5pm. The selected applicant(s) will be announced at the January 19th board meeting.
