CISV Portand hosted our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Program Reveal on Sunday, October 27th at Taborspace. It was our biggest event yet, as families converged to get an update on our chapter, vote in our 2019-2020 executive committee, share a meal together and most excitingly…find out the locations of our 2020 Village and Interchange! That’s right, we’re growing our program offerings next year to include an interchange program for 12 and 13 year-olds in addition to the village program for children age 11.
Do you want to know more about our financial status as a chapter? Hear the results of the committee election? No? Straight to the good stuff? Drumroll please….

2020 Interchange – Ferrara, Italy
Our delegation of 3 boys, 3 girls, and an adult leader will participate in a short interchange program with Ferrara, Italy to be held over 4 weeks. Interchange takes place in two ‘phases’. Your child joins a delegation that visits another country and is hosted there by a CISV family. Then in return you and your family host a child from the delegation from the country your child visited. Interchange exchanges give your whole family the chance to experience another culture and make new friends. The entire group participates in CISV’s unique peace education activities throughout the program. Program Dates: TBD June/July 2020. This program is open to children with birthdates from September 1, 2006 to August 31, 2008. Program cost: $3,250 plus $50 application fee. Airfare included.
