Call for Articles for May 2008 AI Practitioner

NCDD member and AI consultant, Loretta Donovan, is acting as guest editor (along with Gabriel Shirley of Big Mind Consulting and Sue Anderson of Clockwork Communications) of the May 2008 issue of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) Practitioner, and, as is her forté, this issue will venture into the domain of technology. Join them in creating an issue of AI Practitioner that encourages novices to begin to use technology, helps occasional users to deepen or enrich their experience, and supports early adopters to see the full-range of options as they lead or engage others in positive change initiatives. Article proposals should be limited to 300 words and sent to the following by Friday, February 1: Loretta Donovan (loretta.donovan@gmail.com) and Gabriel Shirley (gabriel@bigmindconsulting.com). You can read the entire announcement in a post Loretta added to her NCDD members profile.

The Appreciative Inquiry (AI) Practitioner features articles, case studies and examples highlighting where and how Appreciative Inquiry has been used to bring about positive change. The articles highlight various aspects of the thinking and methodology of Appreciative Inquiry such as the life giving forces in a system, compelling images of the future, designs for living that future and ways to sustain the relationships and systems necessary for positive change. Feel free to contact Loretta if you have any questions.
