Reflections on Community Living

The Northwest Intentional Communities Association was formed by a coalition of intentional communities in the fall of 1992 following the Sustainable Communities Conference, spearheaded by John Affolter of the Teramanto community, that was held in West Seattle at Camp Long. The first meeting of NICA was held in the spring of 1993 at the Wesleyan community on Vashon Island, at which time the bylaws and articles of incorporation were ratified. We incorporated in the Fall of 1993 as a Washington State non-profit. We were involved in the 1993 Fellowship for Intentional Communities Celebration of Communities gatherings and have held summer gatherings ever since. We began publishing a small newsletter in the Fall of 1992, and we successfully became a 501c3 tax exempt organization in 1997.
