2017 Serra International Convention – Rome, Italy

The first working meeting to organise next year’s convention has been held in Rome last week. As announced at the last international convention in St Louis, Missouri, the next convention will be held between 22nd- 25th June 2017 in Rome, Italy.

The theme of the convention is “risveglio della coscienza serrana” – which an internet translation tells me is “Awakening Serran Conciousness” or “Awakening Serran Awareness.” If anyone does understand Italian, please let me know what the theme really is!

More information can be found (in Italian) on the Serra International Italy website.
