Nearly 200 people were invited to participate in a two-day session at Cleveland.com HQ that aims to imagine and design an "Economic and Collective Well-Being Summit" for the region. The planning session is being facilitated — even as we speak — by a couple of leadership gurus from Case, who've pioneered something called the Appreciative Inquiry method.

The stated target of the session is to create an eventual summit that will include all voices and will "more boldly than ever before dare to discover, dream and design our shared visions and actively set in motion our vast potential."



Those invited were said to have been harvested from Cleveland Leadership Center's program graduates, recent Crain's 40 Under 40 honorees, and the networks of the AYUCO15. 

Certain 'outspoken' individuals from the local news media were also said to have been invited, a euphemism, evidently, for CEOs and top editors in the local news media. In addition to Cleveland.com editor Chris Quinn, one of the AYUCO15, other media invitees included Micki Byrnes, President of WKYC; Steve Gleydura, editor of Cleveland Magazine; Kevin Martin, President of Ideastream; Elizabeth McIntyre, editor of Crain's Cleveland Business; Julie Raskind, board chair of Ideastream; Mark Rosenberger, Chief Content Officer at Ideaststream; and Andrew Zelman, CEO at Scene. (Byrnes, Gleydura, Martin, Quinn and Zelman are attending.)

Eighty-four of those invited RSVP'd. The full list, released to the media today, is below. The lack of community representation inspired a rally outside 1801 Superior before the afternoon session began.
