Pre- and Post-Forum Seminars

Detailed information about the 2017 Forum is not yet available but will be posted in the future. Please review the information from the 2016 Forum for a look at the quality of instructors, teaching, and content that will be available in next year’s Pre- and Post-Forum Seminars.

All Forum participants are strongly encouraged to come early to the Forum and participate in the Pre-Forum Seminars, which will occur at the 2016 Forum on Saturday,  21 May from 14.00 to 17.30. All participants are also encouraged to attend the Post-Forum Seminars, which will occur from 8.45 to 12.30 on Thursday, 26 May.


Special Travel Arrangements

If you are flying into Krakow or Katowice, please plan your travel arrangements to accommodate for the travel time to Wisla. Travel time should be approximately 2 1/2 hours. Ideally, this means arriving in Krakow or Katowice by 10.30 or earlier on Saturday, 21 May.

Because we realise that arriving early Saturday morning may not be a possibility for some participants, we have made special arrangements for participants who would like to arrive in Wisla on Friday, 20 May.

Transport by bus from both the Krakow and Katowice airports to Wisla will be provided during the day on Friday, 20 May for a fee of 40 euros.  For an additional pre-payment of 60 euros for a double room (or 80 euros for a single room), we will provide hotel accommodations Friday night in Wisla. Meals begin with dinner on your date of arrival.

If you would like hotel accommodations for Friday, 20 May, please email Kevin Saylor at as soon as possible. 

You can sign up for bus transport for Friday, 20 May and Saturday, 21 May using this form.
