2006 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation

Marketing Opportunities at the 2006 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation

The 2006 NCDD conference will take place in San Francisco in just a couple of weeks, and it looks to be a phenomenal gathering of amazing people from all streams of dialogic and deliberative practice.

Those of you in Northern CA who are not already planning to attend should at least consider participating in one of our unique pre-conference trainings, led by leading organizations like AmericaSpeaks, the Public Conversations Project, and the Compassionate Listening Project. You may also want to participate in the $25 BrainJam! for D&D leaders interested in harnessing new web technologies to strengthen their networks and online communities, or the open-to-the-public Conversation Café we're holding the evening before the conference begins.

If you would like to support NCDD but cannot make it to this year's gathering, consider marketing your program at the conference. It's not too late to send an information/PR piece for us to include in all conference participants' tote bags. The fee for doing this is only $300, but you need to make sure your tote inserts make it to the following address by August 1st at the latest:

c/o John Esterle for NCDD, Whitman Institute, 405 Davis Court, #301, San Francisco, CA 94111

Phone number for FedEx/UPS: 415-982-0386

Let me know if you'd like to include something in the totes. We would really appreciate your support, and we think this is a great opportunity to get the word out about your program.

Here are the headlines of some of the latest posts to our Happenings blog, at Thanks to editor Amy Lang, NCDD's Happenings blog is the best place on the web to stay on top of dialogue & deliberation opportunities, events, and news. Amy suggested that I point out that she just added a lot of funding opportunities to the blog, and those of you in Northern California will notice that many of them are specifically open to you!! I hope this message finds all of you in good spirits. Good luck with all you do, and keep us posted on your work!

NCDD brings together and supports people, organizations, and resources in ways that expand the power of discussion to benefit society. Dialogue and deliberation help people bridge gaps, make better decisions, take collective action, and become more active citizens. Dialogues are powerful personal experiences that often lead to careful deliberation and collaborative action or policy recommendations.
