About the Meeting

The meeting will be devoted to thought-provoking discussions and presentations by a number of speakers on a variety of topics pertinent to our future. The program is a blending of work and networking; formal and informal, with each member free to take part in a number of activities.

Time is still available to enjoy the beautiful environs of the Adirondacks with boating, golf, kayaking or hiking, or a cruise aboard a replicated nineteenth-century touring boat called The Morgan.

The Sagamore ResortThe Sagamore, located in the heart of the Adirondacks, is an island resort on Lake George anchored in Bolton Landing, New York, located 60 miles north of Albany.  Fall in the Adirondacks is often described as the most beautiful time of the year, filled with warm days, cool nights and stunning foliage. As such, we are anxious to welcome you to The Sagamore.
