Last Call for Showcase Proposals!
NCDD is excited to announce that we’ll once again be holding our popular “Dialogue & Deliberation Showcase” during NCDD2023 and we are looking for presenters! Submit your showcase proposal by Monday August 14th to be considered!
The D&D Showcase is a lively reception and networking event that provides an opportunity for select individuals and organizations in our field to showcase some of the leading ideas, tools, projects, and initiatives in dialogue & deliberation with conference participants all in one space. We know that these ideas, tools, and initiatives are all designed to help us overcome some of the challenges facing public engagement. This year, we want to organize those presenting around the challenges their work helps those in the field to overcome.
