The International Flameworking Conference, other known as the I.F.C., is held annually in the spring. This several day conference, chaired by the world renowned glass artist Paul J. Stankard, begins at Salem Community College's main campus and continues with many live demonstrations at the Samuel H. Jones Glass Education Center. Each year the College features an artist that has demonstrated unique and creative techniques throughout their career. Salem Community College and the SCC Foundation are indebted to these distinguished members of the glass art community who have graciously shared their talents as featured artists at the International Flameworking Conference.
