We have had great proposals submitted already since we announced the call for proposals for the upcoming 2023 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation happening October 13-15 in Atlanta, Georgia!
Since this is the first time we are convening again in person since the pandemic, we know how important this opportunity is for our network and wider community of practice. For this reason and in spirit of the conference theme - Our Return: Reconnect, Reflect, Renew, Recommit - we have decided to extend the deadline for the call for proposals to allow more time for the network to connect with others and craft their session proposals.
The new deadline for the NCDD2023 Call for Proposal is Friday, April 28th.
We encourage session proposals which will help attendees network, reflect on our work and practices, learn new skills, and/or explore new efforts, projects, and collaborations. Sessions which are interactive in nature, including sessions which get participants involved in experiencing a process, discussing challenges with one another, or working together to advance our community of practice are encouraged.
We also strongly encourage using the Collaborative Document and/or the NCDD Main Discussion listserv to float your ideas by other NCDDers and members of the planning team. We may be able to match you up with potential co-presenters who can address the same challenge or issue you’re interested in focusing on.
Some advice for potential session leaders:
We are thrilled to see what session proposals are submitted and we can't wait to see you in person at the conference!
