We enjoyed a visit early last week from ICA USA Executive Director Nino Tillman. It was terrific to meet each other and share our organizational experiences & visions.

Lambert has left to participate in UNFCCC’s Accra Climate Change Talks 2008 conference in Ghana, with thanks to the World Rainforest Movement for their sponsorship. He is taking this opportunity to talk to international delegates about participating in our own upcoming 7th global conference in Japan.

Katie and Jane have been sharing a quiet office with the rest of the team away. Jane is busy with outreach for the conference – identifying and approaching possible sponsors, as well as the ongoing scouting of funding opportunities for ICAI.

We have received several new nominations for the Board of ICAI. Stay tuned for more information from the electoral committee!
