FIC Organizational Meeting, April 20—22, Carrboro NC

The Fellowship for Intentional Community will be holding its spring organizational meetings April 20-22, 2012. FIC logo 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 conversation!

See our board meetings webpage for past event locations, and more details about this event.
