Detailed Description of the Summit

Postby johnleeke » April 19th, 2011, 7:51 pm

(update: 7.4.2011)

National Window Preservation Summit

WPSC sponsors the National Window Preservation Summit at Pine Mountain, Kentucky, in July, 2011 .

The five Founders are inviting 30 key Advisers from across the country to attend the summit. The Summit is also open by invitation to 30 Observers. While Observers will not be involved in the day-to-day commenting on the demonstrated standards, they will witness the process and develop strategies to promote the Standards back home.

The purpose of the Summit is to get the writers of the standards together, face-to-face with the Advisers, to effectively revise the draft of the standards. Also, to help the Observers develop a deep understanding of the project and the standards, so they can carry the word about the standards back home.

The Kentucky Heritage Council (KHC) is a partner and assisting with planning and implementation of the summit.

The Pine Mountain Settlement School (PMSS) is is a National Historic Landmark with several buildings and every variety of wood and steel windows. The PMSS has facilities to feed and house up to 60 participants.
Accommodations

The Pine Mountain Settlement School is a 1920s boarding school, which is like stepping back in time. It is a remote site with beautiful buildings of stone and wood, interior oak floors with chestnut and poplar paneling. The accommodations are spare: dorm rooms with a bath down the hall, make your own bed, no TV, no radio, minimal access to internet and spotty coverage for cell phones (a land-line is available). About the only modern concession is air conditioning. A bell rings out to call you to meals, which are served cafeteria style. The food is delicious with homemade rolls and vegetables from their gardens. Vegetarian and some other special dietary needs can be met, be sure to use the downloaded registration form and include a note about your needs.
Permissions

Advisers and Observers understand the purpose of the Summit is to collect information for the Standards and that the proceedings will be thoroughly documented. They give their permission to be recorded, and that their comments, ideas and images may appear at the website and be used in the drafts and final version of the Standards. This may include written notes, photos, audio and video recordings of presentations, conversations and interviews.

while we show the time of the business part of the summit as 26 - 28 in actuality folks will be expected to arrive on 25th in the afternoon and get thier room and have an evening meal. Also folks will have their room Thursday night 28th and be served breakfast the next morning before going on tier way.

I am looking at the PTN site info and se a small glitch in the registration area that says event is July 28 - 28

I'll look closer.

Pat

Thanks. I'll add breakfast the morning after to the Summit description above, and I'll get in touch with Lisa for a correction on the PTN website.

Please continue to post Summit planning updates right here.

Since I know nothing about Pine Mountain Settlement School, I am wondering about the accommodations. Do we get rooms or is it dorm situation? No worries, just curious.

Also how is wireless access? I am debating bringing my computer that has a wireless modem. My WiFi is broken.

And how about the weather in late July? I am guessing warm to hot with high humidity but I am not familiar with this area.

Joy,

The Summit will be a "retreat" type experience.

Pat Kennedy writes:

"At Pine Mountain Settlement School the mission is education, primarily environmental education with the majority of students being grade school children. The accommodations are spare. It is a 1930's era boarding school. No tv, no radio, minimal access to internet and spotty coverage for cell phones. No maids to make your bed. About the only modern concession is air conditioning. The dorm rooms have window units, the other 2 sites have central.

That said this is one of my most favorite places to visit and stay. It
is like stepping back in time. It is a beautiful site with beautiful
buildings built of stone and wood, Interiors have oak floors with
chestnut or poplar paneling. A bell rings out to call you to meals
which are served cafeteria style on trays. The food is delicious with
homemade rolls and vegetables from their gardens."

What is the cost of the summit for stakeholders? I'm assuming it's the same as for advisers and observers, but I just wanted to make certain. Thanks!

John's post says: "The registration fee for Advisers and Observers is $350, which includes lodging and three meals a day at Pine Mountain. (Lodging and meals cost about $180 a person. The additional $170 of the registration fee will help offset the other costs associated with the entire endeavor.) No fee for Founders and Assistants."
