Conference sessions will emphasize discussion so participants can address issues pertinent to their individual concerns. See links at left for details on registration, accommodations, meals, directions, and preconference readings.

Because the conference will take place in Stalowa Wola and Sandomierz, Central and Eastern European citizens will have an opportunity to attend a conference closer to home. Sandomierz is especially worth seeing since it is one of the oldest and historically most significant cities in Poland. 

The agenda will address the needs of those seeking help and those who want to help others.

Speakers will include some of the cultic studies field’s most experienced professionals, as well former members and family members who will share their experiences.  

Because ICSA is firmly committed to freedom of thought, expression, and religion, its conferences are open to people from diverse backgrounds with diverse points of view. Opinions expressed are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views of ICSA's directors, staff, or supporters. Former group members dealing with recovery issues should keep these points in mind. 

Please tell others about this conference. We hope you join us!
