Join us for the NCDD Tufts Meetup: A speed networking and learning event

NCDD is holding a meetup for our members (and potential members) right before this year’s Frontiers of Democracy conference begins at Tufts right outside Boston in Medford, Mass.  We have so many fabulous NCDDers in the area, and we’ll also have some exciting members coming in from outside the region, so we thought this would be a good opportunity for us to get together.

Tufts-logoWhether or not you’ll be attending the Frontiers conference July 18th through 20th (http://tinyurl.com/ceezm9u), if you’re within driving distance of Boston, please plan to join us on July 18th from 1-4 pm.  We’re charging a nominal fee of $25 to cover expenses, and you can register now at www.ncdd-tufts-meetup.eventbrite.com.

Feel free to share your ideas for this afternoon gathering here on the blog, or email them to sandy@ncdd.org.  For this 3-hour meetup, we plan to keep things simple, participatory, and fun.

From the registration page…

Members of the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD.org) are invited to join NCDD’s director and several Board members for a fun afternoon meetup before the Frontiers of Democracy conference begins.

From 1:00 to 4:00, we’ll enjoy some coffee and snacks, partake in some “speed networking,” spend time in small groups learning about some of the region’s most exciting dialogue and deliberation projects, and talk some about what is and can be done to build civic infrastructure in the region.

We’re encouraging NCDD members (and potential members) from across New England to come together for the event, whether or not they’re attending the Frontiers conference.  NCDDers coming in from outside New England for Frontiers are strongly encouraged to attend as well.

Attendees will receive a list of everyone present (including contact info and bios) to encourage you to continue connecting and collaborating after the meetup.

Not an NCDD member?
You can join at www.ncdd.org/join. The $50 annual dues for supporting members is not required, so please don’t let dues deter you from becoming a member of this great network!
