Annual SummitS

The Annual Summit is the cornerstone of the ETD Alliance, the primary time of the year when members as a whole come face-to-face and spend time together. We come together committed to enhance professional practices, build skills, deepen relationships, discuss industry trends, and learn new ways to think about our work and our businesses. Lively discussions, intimate conversations and experiential workshops provide the perfect opportunity to explore ways to better meet client needs, improve offerings and expand plans for the future.

Over the years we have invited key industry leaders to come and be with us (an intimate gathering of about 30 people), engaging in challenging conversations and exploring the learning edges of our roles as business owners/principles, practitioners and professionals. Having fun and networking are both key elements of the event!

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with ETDA at their annual meeting.  Each person showed up ready to get to work and open to challenging themselves and each other.  They practice what they preach.  Plus they are fun to be with.”

-- Allan Cohen
