Post-International Meeting Edition
Live and In-person!
Countries represented this year: Bavaria, France, Hungary, Scotland, Sweden, Ukraine, and U.S.A.
The International Meeting was hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden April 12-16. Though O.F. has managed to meet virtually over the past two years, nothing replaces gathering in person. The sensation of hugging, laughing with, an sharing meals with others is priceless. Gathering affords an opportunity to have conversation beyond "business" talk, fostering an environment conducive to friendship. After all, isn't that at the very core of our organization's mission?
Representing O.F. America:
Julien Cherry, Kristina Riley, Karen Canning
O.F. Young Adults Group
O.F.Y.A. is motivated, having formed a WhatsApp chat group to stay connected and plan for 2024.
