About the Intelligence Summitsm
http://www.intelligencesummit.org/about.php

Welcome to the International Intelligence Summitsm, a non-partisan, non-profit, neutral forum that uses private charitable funds to bring together intelligence agencies of the free world and the emerging democracies. The purpose of The Summit is to provide an opportunity for the international intelligence community to listen to and learn from each other, and to share ideas in the common war against terrorism. The Summit's Advisory Council includes Generals , a former senior FBI official, a former senior Mossad officer, and the former Chair of British Joint Intelligence Committee.

The list of presenters at The Summit will include many of the top leaders of the intelligence, espionage, counter-terrorism and counter-intelligence agencies from around the free world. The Summit is intended to be the most prestigious world conference on international studies, intelligence policy, terrorism, and homeland security.

WHEN: March 5-7, 2007

WHERE: St. Petersburg Hilton, St. Petersburg Florida USA

WHAT: Because it is funded by a public charity, the Intelligence Summitsm must always remain a bipartisan non-profit educational forum where members of the international intelligence community will be able to meet each other on neutral ground. Delegates from every free nation and emerging democracy are invited to attend.

FACULTY: On the one hand, The Summit recruits active serving members of the government to serve as neutral moderators. The panelists, on the other hand, are usually recently retired senior officials: generals, agency heads, etc., who are a bit more free to speak their minds than serving officers. In some cases, panel members are authors, members of the media, or academic experts.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: The audience is predominantly middle and senior level intelligence officers and business CEOs. There is also a strong core of senior academic and media leaders who wish to keep abreast of the latest in intelligence technology, as well as risk assessment. Particular emphasis is placed on inviting émigré groups from soon to be emerging democracies. Experts in regional/international studies, as well as law enforcement and terrorism specialists should find The Summit extremely valuable.

RESTRICTIONS: The press and public will be allowed to attend on a space available basis, subject to waiting lists on condition that all conversations at The Summit, whether inside the classrooms or outside in the hallways, are on a "not for attribution" basis. That is, the words may be quoted but neither the speaker nor his agency may be identified by name. Most sessions are intended to be unclassified, but special arrangements, some classified facilities such as transportation to a SCIF, can be made as the need arises. The general public will be restricted to the exhibit floor. Admission to the classrooms and discussion areas will be restricted by encrypted pass and security check prior to entering the floor of The Summit itself.

OUR HOSTS:

The International Intelligence Summitsm is a fully authorized program of IHEC. Founded in 1995, IHEC is a nationally recognized publicly supported charity for educational purposes. IHEC contributions are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code(1). In addition to the Federal Tax deduction for charitable contributions, the State of Florida gives an additional 50% cash rebate to qualified IHEC donors(2).

Originally incorporated as the International Holocaust Education Center(3), after 9/11 IHEC rapidly expanded its educational mission from fighting racism to fighting terrorism, and is now known as the Intelligence and Homeland Security Education Center.

Because it is a private charity, IHEC can respond more rapidly and flexibly than most government agencies and has funded some of the most innovative programs in the war against terrorism. In 2002, IHEC funded a national research program using private investigators to obtain information on the financing of domestic terrorists. IHEC's educational research has aided in the exposure and subsequent indictment of Professor Sami Al Arian, and other sensitive investigations, which are still ongoing.

In 2004-2005, IHEC funded many of the program expenses, including most of the international speakers' travel, for INTELCON, the National Intelligence Convention and Exposition in Washington DC. However, INTELCON's primary purpose was education for American intelligence agencies only, and excluded US counter-terrorism and homeland security. The Intelligence Summitsm will include all international and national intelligence, CI and CT entities.

OUR LEADERS:

Former Intelligence Officer & Federal Prosecutor John Loftus and his army of volunteers that made Intelcon's program such a success will be joining with the key staff from the counter terrorism conference to take the Intelligence Summitsm to the next level.

Our International Advisory Council consists of some of the best minds of our time.

PROGRAM

We intend that most of the Intelligence Summitsm's programming will be determined by the intelligence community itself. After all, we exist to serve them. The program schedule will be broken down into five or more parallel sessions.

International Session
The lead session will, of course, be international area studies, where the presenters will be members of the national intelligence services involved. Over a three-day period, nation after nation will describe the world and its problems as they see it from their own country. This is a must session for threat analysts and regional experts, and embassy spokespersons who have a primary intelligence responsibility.

Business Session
Business leaders from around the world will meet to share their lessons learned and experiences in the war against terror. CEO's, security officers, and IT staff will be taught by the most experienced faculty with the latest practical information on how to defend your business from attack, learn the latest developments in competitive intelligence, and see the most advanced technological advances in the world.

Technology Session
For three consecutive days, the cutting edge technology of the world will be on display. Hardware or software, counter-terrorism or intelligence, from UAVs to WMD detection, these panels and presenters offer the best that is being built. Special attention will be given to requests for future technology from the intelligence community.

Counter-Terrorism Session
This is the session where the military leaders of the free nations meet to listen to and learn from each other. If there is a global war on terrorism, how are our partners around the planet fighting it? Where are we winning? What tactics are losing? Which nation's generals are doing better and why? Is Al Qaeda regrouping or falling apart? Are we sharing enough information or too little to win the war?

Homeland Security Session
Some of our allies have very different approaches to domestic security. What can we learn form Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and Israel? This is a must session for law enforcement and first responders from the national, state and local levels of every free nation around the world.

Specialist Sessions
Every specialty and subgroup in the entire world of intelligence, counter intelligence, counter-terrorism and law enforcement will be represented in various classes at The Summit. Whether members of the media, the academic sector, or the corporate community each will have an opportunity to meet their peers in engaging and informative panels. Topics to be announced after consultation with each service.

FEES

Substantial discounts are given to members of the government, military services, veterans and academic groups. Scholarships are available upon request.
