They offer alumni access to webinars and starting in February a website just for alumni where they can gain access to tools and share their stories and experiences.

You’ll need to put in NCDD in the special codes space when registering to automatically receive the discount.

Also, Rich Harwood has just written a new essay that you may be interested in reading. Make Hope Real discusses 5 key factors to making hope real in our communities. The essay is a tool for both understanding the challenges of creating change, as well as a way to begin a national discussion on what each of us can do to make hope real in our own community. The essay Make Hope Real offers readers an opportunity to explore the ways that they can help to accelerate change in their community and make hope real. To order the essay, call 301-656-3669. The regular price is $5 but for NCDD members it is $4 – just say you are with NCDD to get the discount.
