The Technology of Participation (ToP)® Annual Gathering will be held at the Hilton Durham near Duke University in Durham, NC from January 11 through 14, 2013.

The Gathering will enable ToP facilitators and trainers to promote peer learning; explore innovations; deepen practice of the methods; and advance the ToP Network. The organizers want participants to connect with colleagues, celebrate successes of 2012, and be rejuvenated for 2013. The theme for the event is based on the host city's name, with each letter highlighting a different goal.

  • Discover more about the ToP Network,
  • Understand the heart of members' work,
  • Revisit 2012 successes,
  • Herald ToP Methods,
  • Advance colleagues' work, and
  • Make a difference with new ToP friends and colleagues in Durham.

Pre-gathering events begin on Thursday, January 10 at the host hotel with a Certification Assessors Meeting. On the morning of Friday the 11th, Certified ToP Facilitator (CTF) Assessments will take place. This year, six candidates will be undergoing assessment. The main gathering starts at noon on the 11th, and include plenary sessions, reports from various task-teams, break-out sessions, and a celebration dinner. Starting at 2 p.m. on the 14th, there will be several post-gathering training opportunities including "Lure the Tiger out of the Mountains”, "ToP Secrets of Implementation”, and the "Power of Image Shift (PoIS).”
