We are so thrilled for the upcoming 9th National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation (#NCDD2023) happening October 13-15 in Atlanta, Georgia. The NCDD team has been hard at work to make it a great event and we have some early conference details to share with you (some of which have important time-sensitive deadlines coming up).
Call for Proposals is Live
We’re interested in finding creative ways to highlight the best of what’s happening in public engagement, group process, community problem-solving, civic tech, arts-based dialogue, and more — and we know you have lots of ideas! Check out what we're looking for in the blog post here. We look for the most collaborative, engaging sessions that get people involved in exploring models, discussing challenges and innovations, and more.
Most workshops at NCDD conferences are collaborative efforts involving multiple presenters. Consider using the NCDD Main Discussion listserv to put out feelers for potential co-presenters if you’d like. NCDD has also created a Collaborative Document to help with making connections. Have fun and get collaborating!
Once your session proposal is ready, submit your workshop session application at this form linked here. Submissions are due Friday, April 14th.
