More than 30 institutions have already confirmed attendance at the 2013 Annual Summit, with many more registrations pending from both current and prospective members. Due to this overwhelming response, we have made some important changes to the program — please be sure to review the latest version of the Summit agenda. All the best practice sessions are now scheduled to conclude by Thursday 20 June. The final day of the Summit, Friday 21 June, will be reserved for members only and will focus intensively on the vision for the Alliance’s future: our strategic plan, the value proposition for our network, and how we sustain our recent momentum to continue growing in size and influence. If you have not already completed registration, please do not delay – obtaining a travel visa for Turkey can take up to six weeks, so time is of the essence. Alliance members can register and pay for the Summit via the online registration portal hosted within The Vault, the members-only, password-protected section of Please note that attendance at the Summit is by invitation only. If your institution is not a member of the Alliance and you are interested in attending the Summit, please contact us at
