We would like to thank all of the individuals listed below for their support and advice on the promotion and development of the Institute from its founding in 1997 to the Advisory Council's retirement in 2008. For the record, it should be noted that Institute releases during this period did not reflect the views of any particular member of the Council, but expressed only the views and ideas of their authors or the public policy positions of the Institute itself.

It has been a long journey driven by a staunch belief in the vision and mission of the Institute as a means of promoting a forward thinking approach to public policy, as well as a way of examining those fundamental perennial questions with which men and women have struggled spiritually and intellectually in their daily lives over the millennia. Inspired by the following words of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the work of the Institute and its development will continue for the public good.

"Let truth appear but once to a single soul, and nothing can ever stop it from invading everything and setting everything ablaze."
