Don’t miss our Breakfast of Champions, a private breakfast for you, our Founders Circle members, Thursday, June 16, 9-11 AM in advance of the 2022 Nantucket Book Festival. We have reserved the second floor of Lemon Press Organic Eatery & Café in Nantucket to gather with local CAI talent, enjoy great food, and listen to CAI’s special author episode on The Point with Mindy Todd, as she broadcasts from right down the street. Mindy and some of her guests will join us after the show.

It was our pleasure to offer Founders Circle champions complimentary tickets to see The Moth live on the Zeiterion Stage, in New Bedford, on Friday, March 4th, 7:30pm.
Behind the Binoculars: Bird News with Mark Faherty was held on Friday, October 22, 2021. CAI Founders Circle members joined an exclusive event with Mindy Todd and Mark Faherty. An intimate Zoom meeting gave Founders Circle members an opportunity to engage in a behind-the-scenes discussion about all things birding with CAI’s birding expert, Mark Faherty.
A virtual "Cooking the Harvest" event was held on October 20, 2020. Elspeth Hay of the Local Food Report, and Wesley Price of the Cape Cod Mycological Society met with Steve Junker for our Cooking the Harvest event!
In the fall of 2000, CAI came on the air with the voice of our founder, Jay Allison.

Our purpose, he said, is community service; a sane and respectful place to talk; an ear on the rest of the world.

Thank you for being a Founders Circle member! Enjoy exclusive Founders Circle events and stay connected to our community. More events will be announced throughout the year so check back often and watch for our Founders Circle Quarterly Newsletter for exclusive perks and events to keep you inspired, informed, and entertained.
