Highlights video created by AMU - our 2014 Summit host
In November 2014, the second “Together Let’s Stop Traffick” Summit took place in Charles Town, West Virginia where it was hosted by AMU (American Military University) at the heart of their state-of-the-art solar-powered campus. The Summit brought together 124 motivated delegates and 23 extraordinary speakers from all over the world.
Attendees at the 2014 Summit (Phase III of the project) helped forge the International Resource Centre's physical and operational requirements, as well as clarifying its vision, mission and mandate. Volunteer Working Groups were formed to continue the work through 2015 – each focused on key areas including research, information management, funding, communications and governance.
With another packed three-day program, we hope you can join us in Los Angeles in November 2015 and contribute your expertise. Check back frequently as we add more to the agenda. In the interim, why not join the conversation on our Together Let’s Stop Traffick knowledge network on LinkedIn or follow us @letsstopHT. We’d love to welcome you to the team making this important mission a reality.
Special Thanks to 2014 Summit Host and committed supporter since 2012 : AMU
AMU has been an active supporter of Together Let's Stop Traffick since 2012. In 2014, they increased their support tenfold and hosted the Summit, contributing not only the elegant venue, but also social media and communications support, videography, food and beverages throughout the four days and most of the transportation. They also provided two key speakers (the MC and a keynote) and an energetic support team to assist the event management commitee on the ground.
The American Military University campus surrounds its flagship solar-powered finance center, which was the site of the 2014 Summit. The building has the largest solar array in West Virginia supplying 450 MW and offsetting 350 tons of carbon annually. This state-of-the-art center proudly housed attendees for the 2014 Summit.Click here for an interactive aerial map of AMU
