Register for the 2022 Satellite Summit here!

On behalf of our host, The Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, and the Summit Agenda Planning Committee, Eppard Vision welcomes you to the 2nd Annual and 1st Hybrid Satellite Summit! Over the past 15 years, conversations at the annual Cultural Resource Protection Summit have matured, prompting us to launch a new event, the Satellite Summit, to support and expand these important discussions for the cultural resource community.

With the launch of the Satellite Summit, we continue to work hard to fulfill the mission we have had since the Summit’s inception in 2008: The primary goal in organizing the annual Summit has been to facilitate amongst all affected parties an open, frank discussion about the intersection between cultural resources and land use. The Summit is designed to promote collaborative cultural resource planning as an effective means of finding resolution to issues before they escalate into emotionally-charged, divisive, and expensive stalemates or law suits.

This year’s Satellite Summit agenda includes three critical topics that will prompt attendees to examine current work in CRM, gaps in our ability to accomplish this work, and ways to collaborate to meet these needs. Panel presentations, small group discussions, and time for Q&A and open discussion will support the generation of ideas for collaboration. Meals and breaks will provide additional opportunities to work (or socialize) together. We are pleased to offer you a hybrid event with the option to participate either in-person at the Angel of the Winds Casino Resort or virtually on Zoom, which is intended to facilitate greater participation across our community.

Please join us for a one-day intensive workshop that will help you improve your technical skills while deepening your connection to why we do this work. Then, with renewed commitment, move forward with helpful tools to more effectively protect the cultural resources of the communities you serve.
