ICA commends the organizing team and our hosts in Florida for an eventful and energetic gathering. ICA-USA was well represented at the gathering with four staff members attending, three for the first time. Seva Gandhi, ICA Director of Programs, also led a session which delved deep into the history of ICA’s community engagement. This session was a great opportunity for members new to the ToP Network to learn about the origins of the methods, the 'why' of the organization, and how ToP methods are being used today.
