The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) staff and Board of Directors send you our wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.
As we wrap up 2021, it’s safe to say the year was another challenging one for engagement practitioners, forcing us to continue to think outside the box and look for new ways of bringing people together in community. That’s led to many continued innovations that will carry us forward into 2022, which is already looking to be a year of hybrid engagement (again). NCDD will continue to be a space for this community as you navigate the work to be done. It is also a space for connection, and NCDD will start the year off with some new offerings to help create more of that space.
As we look back on the year that was 2021, NCDD continued to carry out our mission to bring together and support people, organizations, and resources in ways that expand the power of discussion to benefit society, with a few accomplishments we are particularly proud of:
As you consider final gifts for the year, we ask you to consider NCDD. Your gifts go directly to support NCDD staff in continuing to offer programming, keeping the website up to date, and exploring new collaborations to support the dialogue & deliberation community.
In January, NCDD will announce a new monthly member event. This will be in addition to the webinars and events we offer to our whole community for free, and will allow for additional networking and collaboration. To make sure you’re the first to hear about this, be sure to join NCDD today!
We hope you have some time for rest and reflection, and (hopefully) being with the ones you love this holiday season. We are so thankful for this vibrant community, and we look forward to connecting and working with you in 2022.
