NCDD get-together at Tufts next Thursday

Are you planning on attending this year’s Frontiers of Democracy conference?  Or do you live somewhere in New England (within driving distance of Tufts campus in Medford, MA)?  If so, I invite you to join us on Thursday, July 18th for a fun afternoon meetup.

Boston2010-bwThe Frontiers conference begins that evening, and I encourage you to attend that event as well.

We’ll be getting together from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Tufts in Medford to do 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’s being done to develop an infrastructure for dialogue and deliberation in the region. Coffee and snacks will be provided.

We’re encouraging NCDD members, their guests, and NCDD “types” (facilitators, consultants, nonprofit leaders, public administrators, students, etc.) from across New England to come together for this informal event, whether or not you’re staying on for the Frontiers conference. NCDDers coming in from outside New England for Frontiers are strongly encouraged to attend as well.

Frontiers of Democracy is sponsored by the Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, the Democracy Imperative, and the Deliberative Democracy Consortium. Between 125 and 150 people attend this conference each year – including many leading deliberative democracy scholars and practitioners.

Register today at www.ncdd-tufts-meetup.eventbrite.com so we know you’re coming!  A nominal fee of $25 is being charged to cover expenses. Send me an email at sandy@ncdd.org if the $25 if a problem, or if you’d like to just bring cash or a check to the meeting.
