Explore the intersection of empathy and AI-assisted knowledge sharing.
Join forward-thinking practitioners and leaders.
April 9-11, 2024 in Fort Worth, Texas
Members and non-Members alike are invited to join us at the annual Member Summit: a three-day, in person gathering where we delve into the work of the previous year and explore what’s coming next.
As a not-for-profit think tank, the Consortium’s focus is on building relationships, so space is limited.
We do not allow event sponsors or marketing towards attendees.

Hear from Previous Attendees
I liked the variety of formats. There were presentations with everyone together, small group sessions, and the wonderful Open Space. The variety made it easy to stay engaged. It was also nice to have most meals together as a group. Conversation at meals came easily and it encouraged me to connect with more people.Lana Kosnik, Upland Software
What did I find most valuable about my experience at the Summit? The energy, camaraderie, free-flowing ideas, and commitment to the philosophy and methodology that you have authored, invested in, and continued to evolve.Lynette Ledoux, SearchUnify
I think Open Space is always a valuable experience. The ability to talk with, connect, and explore a variety of topics with so many niche experts like this is such a unique experience you can’t really get at other industry type events where most of the time you are just “talked at”.Patrick Vescio, Braze
Professionals from these companies, and more, attended last year!
This think tank has given me so much more than theory; it has provided exciting, real world application that I can take back to my teams and those around me. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear from some of the most brilliant minds in the industry.Kendall Brenneise, F5 (named Consortium Innovator at Member Summit 2023)
Why You Should Attend
Hear what others are doing
Member Summit attendees come from organizations at every stage of implementing, maturing, and innovating on Consortium methodologies like KCS and Intelligent Swarming. No matter where you are in a transformation lifecycle, you will walk away with new ideas and practical techniques to move your organization forward.
Your urgent topics drive the agenda
With a full day of Open Space, a technique of building the agenda together, you will have the opportunity to propose and attend deep dive sessions with your thought-leading peers. Member Summit is about interaction and engagement; what’s on your mind drives the discussions. Attendees often say Open Space is their favorite part of our events.
Interesting people, important topics, nice places: we aim for rich discussions in a high trust environment. We create space in the agenda for interaction, limit the number of attendees, and leave titles at the door. Sharing experiences is how the community learns!
Get ready for the future
Under day-to-day pressure, it’s sometimes hard to keep the big picture in mind. While we’ll spend time on operational topics, we also offer time to explore what’s on the horizon so that we can co-create the future of customer engagement.
The Consortium staff is here to help! Let us know what other information we can provide to help make the case for your attendance.
