BIL Vancouver last month!  If you participated THANK
YOU for your donations, talks, artwork, music, interactive
experiences, hard work, and support.  YOU are BIL,
and it doesn't exist without you.   We are also happy to add that we
landed in the black, after all was said and done, and the few hundred
dollars left over will go into the pot for next year's BILs!

Vancouver 2015! If you want to contribute your ideas to future BILs,

BIL Conference 2015 Vancouver was also a huge
success!   THANK YOU to all who contributed their
time and talents!  BIL has followed TED since 2008. Michael Cummings
led the first and second BIL that followed Ted to Canada after TED
moved in 2014. Each BIL Vancouver has been a growing success and our
community in Canada is widening! We hope to continue a flagship BIL
next to TED. 

To participate in next year's international
BIL Vancouver, visit the Vancouver website listed below for more
details! Or email michael at bilconference.com with
LEAD VOLUNTEER in the subject.

BIL Tunisia does BIL in a unique and exciting way. They have a
tight community that meets on a regular basis. They are
constantly gearing up for another BIL unconference! 

BIL has grown into a worldwide stand-alone unconference. We
have become an international movement committed to interacting and
creating what's possible. BIL exists as a vehicle for us to get
together. It's yours, mine and ours. We only grow with what people are
willing to do. 

We  love this slideshow of BIL 2015 LA photos!

We hope to
see you at the
first BILFlash or
at BIL 2016!  Though that is so for away! Maybe you want to host your
own BILFlash in the mean time!  

If you have friends
who want to know more about BIL, show them the RVWBR interview.  It's an
entertaining overview of the history of BIL.  

We thank you for being a part of our community and
look forward to BILding with you in the future!
