Dates Changed for the next Summit!

We have some big news—After seven years of no summer vacations, we've made the decision to move our FoST Summit from Fall 2019 to late Spring 2020. It's with great delight that we announce that the next FoST Summit will take place June 3rd and 4th, 2020, again at Snug Harbor in New York. This will give us even more creative breathing space and planning time to ensure that the 2020 Summit is our most spectacular yet!

One of New York City’s hidden gems, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden began its life in the mid-nineteenth century as a home for retired sailors. Today, the sprawling 83-acre campus is a thriving regional arts center that includes landmark buildings, lush gardens, and wide-open spaces. It’s a place where history and the arts come alive in one of the city’s most unique architectural complexes and historic landscapes.
