Complexity Weekend November 12-14, 2021: Participant Commitment Form
We are very excited to embark on this Applied Complexity journey with you, and to welcome you into the November 2021 cohort (and our global community of practice of over 250+ past participants)!

The global, interactive, fully-synchronous Weekend will be November 12-14th 2021.
The cohort-based pre-Weekend phase will begin October 4, 2021.

All time zones, backgrounds, and level of familiarity with Complexity are welcomed here, and we organize specifically for all these important dimensions of diversity.

There is no financial barrier to participating in Complexity Weekend.
That being said, if you would like to support our community of practice financially (optional but encouraged and vital for our community to be financially sustainable), please use the link https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/ComplexityWeekend, or let us know if you would like to support via cryptocurrency or other mechanisms. Also you will have the opportunity to support CW later, if you'd like to experience the cohort-based pre-Weekend and Weekend before deciding how much to support.

Let us know at ComplexityWeekend@gmail.com if you have any recommendations for possible Facilitators, Supporters, or communities of possible Participants to contact.

If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to email ComplexityWeekend@gmail.com or @complexityteam on Keybase.

What is the best email address for you? *
This will be the email address that we (a) send onboarding material to and communicate with you through, (b) add to CW calendar events, and (c) add to the event guest list so you can enter the digital space for the event.
Please enter your Keybase username here -- this is an essential mechanism of communication and text interactions before/during/after the Weekend. *
If you do not have a Keybase username yet, download the application from here https://keybase.io/download and create a username. Let us know if you are having any issues with Keybase at all by emailing ComplexityWeekend@gmail.com, and we can help.
To the best of your abilities, will you be able to participate during the pre-Weekend experience (starting from onboarding until the weekend begins on November 12th)? *
This will entail watching short Facilitator introduction videos, engaging in the Keybase team with your cohort (asynchronous text & file sharing platform), and engaging in Gather during opt-in pre-weekend events (the video chat platform we use for all synchronous cohort events).
Required
To the best of your abilities, will you be able to participate during the full Weekend experience itself (November 12-14th 2021)? *
The Weekend is designed to facilitate your learning Complexity by doing, build cohesion among the cohort, and for those who are interested, progress toward team-formation over the course of the experience. It is essential that participants commit to fully participating as much as they are able to over the full weekend. This can be as much time you can set aside, as during the Weekend there will be continuous activity. The experience will be designed to include participants from all time zones. This event and community is really only what we collectively put into it -- so out of fairness, we want to make sure that everyone joining the cohort intends to show up for each other and participate in the interactive Weekend sessions.
