TECHNOLOGY OF PARTICIPATION (ToP) NETWORK CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF FACILITATION!
On January 8 - 10th at the ToP Annual Gathering the ToP Network celebrated its 25th year. Held in Phoenix, Arizona the event allowed attendees to take stock on how far the Network has come since its inception, and discuss where they would like to see it go in the future.
The gathering began and ended with a ToP Historical Scan, looking at all of the milestones of the previous 25 years. Each day as participants added more memories to it, the wall began to tell the story of the Networks journey. The Scan created a way for old and new Network members alike to create a shared history. It also allowed closure on some parts of the history and set the stage for the Network and ICA to embark on a new journey together.
