2019 ATI Annual Conference
October 20 – 25, 2019 | Ireland
We look forward to hosting ATI at Hotel Woodstock, just outside Ennis in County Clare on the West Coast of Ireland. Visit here to learn more: www.hotelwoodstock.ie. This promises to be the perfect environment for our 2019 Annual Conference.
The Conference commences on Monday, October 21, 2019. Set up, pre-meetings, and the ATI Certification Process will take place Sunday, October 20, 2019. If you are involved in any committees or events that happen before the opening ceremony on Monday, October 21, please make your travel and accommodation bookings to arrive in advance.
Our Annual Conference is hosted by ATI members each year who invite us to visit their country every year. This time where we come together to celebrate AT work, and share ideas with like-minded people from all over world, is greatly rewarding. The Annual Conference is also the place that we attend to the business of ATI.
Our Annual Conference consists of quality-packed days that include workshops presented by an international group of presenters that cover many different aspects of Alexander work. Everyone is welcome to attend any of our Annual Conferences; you do not have to be a member of ATI to attend or present at an Annual Conference. There are many opportunities for being involved at an Annual Conference if you do not want to be a workshop presenter. The more you are involved, the better the experience of belonging and connecting in this Alexander world.
Any member of ATI may submit a proposal to host an Annual Conference to the Board. The Site Committee can provide you with basic requirements that need to be included in the proposal, should you decide to propose a site for a future ATI Annual Conference.
