Meet ICSA Members
From time to time, this column will feature a short profile on an ICSA member. 

Douglas Agustin was born in 1943 in Minnesota and continues to reside there. A retired account manager, he engages in part time cult awareness consulting. His formal education includes some college but no degree. He enjoys fishing, hunting, dog training, gardening, and his family when he is not sharing cult awareness information. Doug became involved in the cult awareness movement after a family member joined a known cult. After more than 30 years in the cult awareness field, he considers himself to be an RKP - -Reasonably Knowledgeable Person - if not an officially accredited expert. He has been a member of Free Minds of Minnesota since 1983 and served as the organization’s president for eight of those years. He chaired the committee that organized the National CAN/AFF Conference held in Minnesota in 1993. He has worked to educate and inform about 500 families/individuals over the past 28 years. He has given dozens of talks to church, civic, college/university, and government groups. He currently works with a number of cult affected families/individuals in the US and England, primarily on line.
