The Chemung River is the convergence of three rivers that eventually go on to connect to one of the most important watersheds in our region. And like these systems of natural beauty, TEDxChemungRiver was the convergence of intellectual thought and creativity from which the attendees had an extraordinary opportunity to share ideas with other thoughtful minds in our small, yet vibrant, community. For its inaugural year, TEDxChemungRiver chose the theme "It Connects Us."

TEDxChemungRiver showcased many amazing and enlightening local speakers and performers. This intimate event brought together an audience of 100 unlikely peers who were excited about giving their voice to innovative and world-changing ideas. At TEDxChemungRiver, 15 live speakers and TEDTalks video combined to spark deep discussion and connection in the intellectually-charged group.

This daylong event took place on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at The Heights Theater in Elmira Heights, NY. The cost to attend was $35, which included a continental breakfast, lunch, cocktail party, and admission to all of the event performances and networking opportunities.
