“To act collectively is according to the spirit of our institutions.”

~ Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

 

NOTE: Please Read Carefully & Thoroughly If You’re Registering in the Last Weeks. You Should Find Answers Here to All Your Questions.

 

Autumn in the North Country:

If your schedule allows, plan to come early or stay afterward. New England, and the North Country, in particular, are known the world over for their spectacular autumn foliage (leaves) and scenic hikes, paddles, and festivals.

 

Convocation Registration:

Space, friends, is limited. If you want to be assured of a seat at the convocation, registration is required. Note, there is no cost to attend the Convocation.

Cost:

While there is no fee for attendance, contributions are welcome to help cover the costs of the convocation, as well as those of participants both from less prosperous nations and from further afield. Simply expressed, a helping hand will be gratefully received.

 

Lodging:

Lodging as available at the Mount Washington Hotel http://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/bretton-woods-mount-washington and in hotels, motels, beds & breakfasts, camp grounds, and gratis as guests in host homes in the surrounding communities see: http://brettonwoodsiv.org/local-area/ . When confirming lodging be sure that you are in the proximity of the host community. The drives from one host community to the next are @ 45 minutes. If you are staying in a hotel or public establishment, your own transportation will be required. Note, since this is the brilliant autumn leaf season in New England, you are encouraged to reserve rooms immediately.

 

Guest Stays are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those who would appreciate complimentary (free) lodging in a host home should indicate that in the registration form. Again, early notification is encouraged to ensure availability. You will be informed if your own transportation is required.

 

Transportation:

For those traveling from afar, the nearest major airport is Manchester, New Hampshire. Airports in Boston, Massachusetts; Burlington, Vermont; and Portland, Maine are within 3 hours of Bretton Woods. Depending on your airport, buses may be able to take you to Littleton, New Hampshire. (Check schedules ahead of time.) Littleton is 30 minutes from the Mt. Washington Hotel. Note, public transportation in the North Country can not be counted on. If you are coming from afar and have not made other arrangements, you will have to rent a car. Visit the web sites of the major car rentals: Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, Budget etc. Further details are available at: http://brettonwoods.com/general/travel_tips/how_to_get_here .

 

Funding:

In the spirit of our New England self-reliance, attendees who require support are encouraged first to reach out to your friends, colleagues, and local organizations. If you are engaged in your community, your attendance — as a representative of it — will be to its benefit and on its behalf. Express invitations are being extended to citizens representing the nations of our world, the United States of America, and the indigenous tribes on the North American continent. If no funding sources whatsoever exist, you are invited to contact us at: info@brettonwoodsiv.org
