The Aspen Institute
Since the first session in 1997, ICAP has been held at Aspen Meadows--home of the Aspen Institute—-in Aspen, Colorado. The beautiful mountain setting away from offices and the immediate pressures of work enables the participants to separate themselves more effectively from their jobs, focus on the program, reflect on their careers and develop relationships within the group. Aspen Meadows has exceptional conference facilities and services, wonderful rooms, is well organized and easily accessible.
From 2006, the Aspen Institute has served as a joint sponsor of ICAP. The institute has provided funding for the program and has made its facilities in Washington, D.C., available for ICAP events. Institute officials have also spoken to the group in Aspen and arranged special events for participants. Many ICAPers have benefited from participation in Aspen Institute Seminars. The relationship is an increasingly close and mutually beneficial one.
