Tampa, FL | September 16-18
The very first Wellville Gathering also marked the first time that the just-chosen Wellville 5 communities gathered. They were eager to meet each other and get started, and we at Wellville (née HICCup) were eager to get serious: metrics, plans, commercial partners, some kind of contest with a prize, and fundraising.
We had two primary goals for the event:
- Let members of the Wellville 5 meet one another and share their experiences and aspirations.
- Figure out – with the W5 participants – which metrics the W5 would use to measure their communities’ progress.
