What we're about

Where actual inquiring minds meet.

This Austin Meetup was formed so people with a similar, secular understanding of the world could get together and build friendships, find support, exchange ideas and simply have fun! There are several events listed every month - from educational programs to social activities. You will find a Lecture Series, Discussion Group, a secular family network for families with kids (Austin Secular Families on Meetup), a ladies-only group (Secular Suzies), Book Group, Community Volunteer Programs - most are free and new folks are always welcome. Most members do not attend all of the events all of the time (including group organizers) - but they are all for folks like us to get together as much as we can. The idea is to meet new people and to catch up with ones we have known a while. Most events are sponsored by the Center for Inquiry Austin; however some events that might interest CFI Austin members also get posted. Come be a part of the Austin secular community!

We are now a semi-autonomous chapter of the Center For Inquiry Transnational. We now collect dues to cover our local activities. Annual dues are $30 for individuals; $45 for a household; $20 for students. If you would like to join and help support our local efforts please send payment to CFI-Austin, PO Box 300036, Austin, TX 78703. Include your name, phone #, and email address. Also, you may join us at a link on the CFI-Austin web page: http://cfi-austin.org/ . Membership will give you free admission to Food For Thought lectures and free or reduced admission to special events.
