Discounts for NCDD Members on Some Great Trainings!

As you may know, NCDD is switching from a totally free membership to a paid membership (with a pay-what-you-can/free option). One of the ways we’re trying to ease this tricky transition is by providing some great benefits for fully paid NCDD members – including discounts for a whole bunch of great trainings and courses. NCDD members who pay the full membership fee can take advantage of discounted rates (mostly 20%) for the following upcoming trainings: The Center for Strategic Facilitation’s Group Facilitation Methods Course – April […] (continue)

The New York City-based Network for Peace through Dialogue (NPD) is pleased to announce its June 15-16, 2007 conference “Why Dialogue: and when and how and where?” which will gather local and national groups to share ways they are using dialogue in various situations and to provide newcomers and experienced practitioners opportunities to learn skills and build networks.

Test Sandbox Post

This is the H1 Heading Above this paragraph should be the H1 heading for your web page. If it is not visible, the design settings for the H1 tag is set to display:none which many WordPress Themes use to hide the blog title text and replace it with a graphic.

An Appeal to all Members of the D&D Community

If you are based in the U.S., I’d like to ask for your help with an important project. The vast majority of members of congress are not aware of the expertise and skill our community has to offer. They do not know how to tap into the dialogue and deliberation community to serve the purposes of good government – or even that there is such a community.  One project spearheaded by NCDD members Kim and Barnett Pearce aims to begin to change this. If you’re […] (continue)

We have just added a couple more videos, include an iPod versions of our 5-minute Overview, to the events section of our website.  We are especially happy to present a 5-minute remembrance from the closing session of the conference which we just added to YouTube.com. (continue)

The Heart of the Matter

I returned from a 3-day Dynamic Facilitation workshop last week inspired, challenged, and healed. For those unaware of the method, as I was prior to attending Jim and Jean Rough’s workshop in Port Townsend, let me vouch for its unique place on our D&D toolbelts – or, rather, its own color on our D&D practioner palettes. DF is different, as it relies on intuitively following the energy of the conversation and purposely probing participants to get at their root concerns and ideas. Please do check […] (continue)

Special Offer for NCDD Members

Last Monday (Jan. 15th), I sent a message out to all NCDD members announcing that NCDD is transitioning from a free membership structure to a paid membership structure (with a pay-what-you-can option).  We are giving free copies of the newly-released 2nd edition of The Change Handbook to the first 200 members to pay the full annual fee (it’s not too bad – only $50 for individuals or $100 for organizations). The checks have been pouring in, which is wonderful, but we still have plenty of […] (continue)

Peace Tiles organizers Nil S. Navaie of Arts for Global Development and Lars Hasselblad Torres of Peace Tiles were on hand during our conference in San Francisco as part of our Arts programming to provide a creative resource for participants, allowing for a different and unique way to process the day’s intake. They have collected photographs of the tiles created in a photo set on Flickr. (continue)
