North American Conventus

Salvete, Sodales Sociique -

On a different thread, Q. Servilius Priscus, Curator and esteemed dual-citizen, mentioned a North American Nova Roma Conventus that was to be planned. Such an event would be worth attending (if allowed!). I'm starting this thread as a place for progress and news items on that topic.

Quintus Servilius Priscus wrote:I'm afraid I'm going to be tied up over in NR for awhile now. I am now a Scriba in Gnaeus Iulius Caesar's Cohors aedilicia. I am also the Group Leader for planning a North American Conventus.

Bene valete.

As Quaestor of Nova Roma overseeing the event, I can confirm this and am excited to see it happen. I will hope that many here will join.
