HOW DO I KNOW IF I QUALIFY TO BE A MEMBER OF THE HUMAN GATHERING?

Each member goes through the same application process. If that process is successful you will be invited to join.

WHY WAS I INVITED TO JOIN THE HUMAN GATHERING?

If you have been invited by our Founders or team, it is because we think you may be one of us. Our team looks for specific traits and behaviors which signal that a person may indeed be a fit for our community. While many of our members learned about The Human Gathering through word-of-mouth or in some other way, our Founders and team actively look for potential members. We do this to ensure that our community is always diverse and eclectic. If you have been invited, take the invitation seriously. You were invited for a reason.

HOW DO YOUR MEMBERS STAY CONNECTED YEAR-ROUND?

Each membership lasts for 365 days. Since 2015 we have developed a unique, proven process that allows us to discover which of our community members can most support each other in their lives. Throughout the year, our team curates dozens of connections for each of our members. In The Human Gathering community, our members find new friends, business partners, investors and so much more. These Curated Connections are hand-picked by our team. A great deal of thought and energy goes into each and every one of them.

Our members also have the opportunity to participate in more intimate experiences and gatherings. Many of these experiences and gatherings are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. To see press coverage around one such experience, simply Google “Martha Stewart Global Seed Vault”. Coverage may be found in Fast Company, Page Six, Fortune, Afar, Bon Appetit, and other major publications. And since each membership lasts 365 days, our members stay connected year-round. 

Our team spends an exceptional amount of time and energy ensuring we are a truly connected community. The Human Gathering was founded by leaders who know the importance of community. These same leaders understand that time is our number one asset and connections and community must be organized to be successful.

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HUMAN GATHERING MEMBERS? 

Unlike all other communities for ambitious individuals, we do not care about your job title or how many letters there are after your last name. In The Human Gathering community, integrity is more important than your title; and, one's character is our barometer of status. Simply put, we look for “Awesome Apples”. And our community is filled with them.

WHAT DO YOUR MEMBERS SAY ABOUT THE HUMAN GATHERING?

- “The Human Gathering has given me the opportunity to do things that have never been available to me in any other group or community that I have ever been a part of.” - Kevin Herd

- “My experience in The Human Gathering has been remarkable. It is exactly what I needed in my life. I’ve met so many people who I normally would never meet. And I have been able to just be myself. If you give a little bit, you get a lot more back. I never would have imagined that replying to a seemingly random email would have led to all of the experiences I have had inside of The Human Gathering community. And I guess that’s the beauty of it.” - John Devae

- “In the beginning after I joined, I was super nervous about meeting new people and didn’t know what to expect. But I have had so much fun! And I have met so many cool people. It is completely different from what I would experience anywhere else. Everyone is like-minded” - Sophia “Puff” Story

- “I am not a natural networker. I’m an introvert. I’m not usually comfortable meeting new people. But the atmosphere in The Human Gathering is casual. There are no barriers. There is no uncomfortableness. And somehow, The Human Gathering has done an amazing job at curating everyone who is a part of the community. Pretty much everybody has a commonality. We’re all very similar. And I guess that is no coincidence.” - Dan Shube
