Summit advance team visits Montclair site

Some of the members of the 2024 Summit team visited Montclair on Tuesday, August 15 to meet with representatives from the School of Communication and Media, the Broadcasting department, housing services and the gala meeting room. We spent some time in downtown Montclair (see the Montclair Center website!!!) with brunch in a Turkish owned cafe and in the evening had dinner in a bookstore/Italian restaurant combination! We've learned from 2019 about the importance of providing transportation to and from downtown, so watch for news about that. We had an especially encouraging meeting with the Broadcast department about the opportunity to use their digital video recording studios to create professional videos for our attendees. We also met with the director of the school who engaged us in an amazing conversation about the importance of storytelling in a time when so much is changing in media. Watch for future notes to understand why he suggested we "Ask the horses..." about adapting to change! You can see the picture above in the online Montclair Weekender newsletter for August 18. They know we are coming and are glad to have us back!
