This year’s National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) is being held in Austin, Texas, October 3-5. This conference is for those dedicated to solving problems through honest talk, quality thinking, and collaborative action. NCDD’s biennial conferences, which are highly participatory, highly innovative and surprisingly affordable, bring together leaders and future leaders in public engagement and conflict resolution to share resources and strategies, build lasting relationships, increase the visibility and effectiveness of their work, tackle challenges facing this emerging field, and initiate collaborative projects.
In Austin, NCDD is offering more ways than ever for conference participants to contribute content, share their work, and make progress on issues they care about. Submit proposals now for:
1. Concurrent Workshops (unique, engaging sessions that highlight the best the dialogue and deliberation community has to offer)
2. Innovations (innovative projects/strategies that address some of the biggest challenges and issues we face in the field; we’ll match you up with other innovators with similar topics to organize joint collaborative sessions at the conference)
3. Networking Topics and Facilitators (topics you’re really into, so you can meet others who share your same interests during a fun, structured networking session) More details about these 3 opportunities, and the forms for submitting proposals and ideas are at www.thataway.org/events/?page_id=119
