The Fellowship for Intentional Community will be holding its spring organizational meetings April 20-22, 2012. If you're interested in what FIC is up to, join us for any or all of our three days of meetings.
If you're interested in community networking--or have questions about
how to handle challenges your group is facing--this is an terrific
opportunity to get together with community veterans, and see where you
might fit in. It's also a chance to witness the consensus process as
practiced by a group with more than 20 years under its belt. We hope
you'll join us for the camaraderie and stimulating
