The Green House® Educator Program
Monday, August 13– Friday, August 17, 2012
We will begin promptly at 12:00 noon on the 13th and end by 1:00 pm on the 17th. It is critical that you plan your travel to allow you to participate in the full learning experience. If you are flying, please plan to arrive at the airport NO LATER THAN 10 a.m. on the 13th and to depart NO EARLIER THAN 3:00 p.m. on the 17th.
Our schedule will vary daily. An agenda that indicates starting and ending times for each program day is included in your packet of materials.
Note: This will be an intensive experience, including visits to the Green House homes at different times of day, including early morning and evening, in order to offer you a glimpse of the daily rhythms of elders and staff. It will be important to your learning experience for you to be fully present and available to participate in all sessions. You will also have several opportunities to relax and explore the area with your fellow Green House Educators or on your own. We ask you to refrain from planning specific leisure-time activities for your stay that will conflict with the enclosed schedule.

Travel and planning tips:
- The closest airport is Albany International. The hotel is approximately 2 miles from the airport and about 7 miles from Eddy Village Green. (We strongly recommend renting a car from the airport, but we are happy to help you explore other options if necessary.)
- Note that Southwest Airlines flies to Albany and is often the most cost-effective option, depending on your home city. Southwest does not participate in travel booking sites such as Expedia or Travelocity, so be sure to check www.southwest.com for available options and fares if interested.
- Attire will be business casual. Since it is often difficult to control meeting room temperature to everyone’s satisfaction, we suggest dressing in layers to allow for your own maximum comfort.
- Meals: We will provide lunch daily, as well as two group dinners on Monday, August 13th and Thursday, February 16th. The Holiday Inn Express offers a complimentary breakfast. Other meals will be on your own.
