Monday

In 2024, the Convergence of International Communities (CIC) will begin with breakfast at 8am on Monday September 2. Additional scheduling details for the CIC will be available in mid summer 2024.

While the schedule is still in development, in past years other local intentional communities have hosted a Monday Program and will likely do so again in 2024.
