The organization of this 5th World Appreciative Inquiry Conference is rooted in Belgium and at the same time connected with European AI networks and AI professionals worldwide.
David Cooperrider – USA – Professor at Case Western Reserve University
Ron Fry – USA – Professor at Case Western Reserve University
To organize both broad connectedness and swift decision making at the same time, we designed an organization structure consisting of the following groups:
Host: Local Organizing Committee (Belgium):
Three Belgian organizations form a partnership that is called ‘De Werf’ (in English: yard). They are all active in personal, organizational and community development: Stebo vzw, Kessels & Smit, and Evenwicht. More.
Program: Conference Organizing Committee
This group is responsible and mandated for putting the conference program together. We worked towards a group of people who take a leading role in several European AI networks, and with a link to the origin of AI at Case Western Reserve University. More.
International Advisory Board
The International Advisory Board is a group of people from AI communities worldwide. They advise the Conference Organizing Committee at regular point during the design and preparation phase. More.
