ROI Community members are a diverse crowd – and that’s the way we like it! They represent a range of professions and fields, from business to service work (click here for a full overview); hail from dozens of countries around the world; and bring a colorful array of talents and experiences to their ROI peers and beyond. As a network that consists of entrepreneurs, artists, lay leaders, business professionals and more, ROI Community really does equal more than the sum of its parts.

Important eligibility clarifications and tips:

I have not been recommended to apply to the ROI Summit. Can I still apply?

Applications to the ROI Summit are only available to individuals who have been recommended to ROI Community by ROIers or organizational partners.

I already participated in an ROI Summit or Regional Gathering. Can I apply to attend the 2019 ROI Summit?

If you have already participated in an ROI Summit or Regional Gathering, then the Summit application process is not for you. Only a small group of existing ROI members return to participate in the ROI Summit via an invitation from ROI Community.

Are alumni of REALITY trips and Schusterman Connection Points eligible to apply?

Yes! Participation in a Schusterman immersive program does not disqualify you from applying to the 2019 ROI Summit.
