Thank you to everyone who organized, volunteered, attended, sponsored and publicized the 2014 Transcending Boundaries Conference! We had an incredible conference, between our diverse workshops, keynote speaker Wintersong Tashlin, dancing, gaming and socializing. Photos to come!
If you attended TBC2014 and didn't get a chance to fill out a conference evaluation, you can fill out a post-event survey online. You can also give us feedback on individual workshops, so we can make the next Transcending Boundaries Conference even better.
Interested in helping organize the next Transcending Boundaries Conference? Not sure if you're interested, but still want to go to a picnic with other awesome TBC folks? Come to our Organizers Picnic!
Date: May 10, 2014
Time: Noon - 4 pm
The picnic is a potluck, so please bring a dish to share if you can. Directions are available here.
Its hard to believe we're only 5 days away! Since we're in a new location this year, doing some different events and expecting a bunch of people who've never been to TBC before, we thought we'd give a few tips and reminders on what to pack for the weekend.
Friday night is our private pool party! The pool will be available for our exclusive use from 10 to midnight If you're planning to join us for this (and we hope you will) make sure to bring swim wear, goggles, whatever you need to enjoy the pool.
Saturday night is our dance/costume party. Costumes and creative attire are encouraged. If you're like many of us, you've got that thing hanging in your closet that you bought because it was really cool but its also totally impractical; this is an ideal time to break it out.
Throughout the weekend, we will be operating a clothing swap so bring the clothes you don't want and go home with the clothes you do want!
We do have several organizations tabling with us who will be either selling items or handing our information. In addition, when you check in you'll be receiving a registration packet from us. A small bag to carry these items around can make your life a while lot easier.
Weather reports are currently predicting highs between 45-55 during the conference. It IS spring in New England so its best to assume it will rain at least once. Keep that in mind, especially if you plan to leave the hotel in search of food. The hotel will do its best to keep temperatures comfortable indoors. If you are a person who gets cold easily, you'll probably want a sweater or jacket you can throw on while you're in workshops just in case.
Happy packing and we'll see you in 5 days!
There are a lot of things I love about the Transcending Boundaries conference, but my favorite is that I never have to leave anything about myself at the door. I can spend the weekend celebrating and feeling comfortable with myself as a whole person without having to worry about there being some aspect of me that doesn’t belong. It’s a life-changing feeling in a world that often insists on boxes and dichotomies, and I want others to be able to experience it too. That’s what drives my work as the Access Coordinator for Transcending Boundaries 2014.
