The first International gathering of agnostics, atheists and freethinkers in AA was in Santa Monica in 2014. In 2016 it was Austin and Toronto hosted 2018. Washington was going to host the in-person ICSAA2020 but that has been postponed to 2021 (fingers crossed at time of recording). So - we went virtual for our December 5, 2020 ICSAA gathering.

This is "It came from the Kitchen!"
