IISD LogoIISD logoWe hope you will join us in extending a warm NCDD congratulations to Mark J. Farr on his recent appointment as the new president of the International Institute for Sustained Dialogue.  IISD’s work in fostering sustained dialogue here and abroad has made important inroads in our field, and we look forward to seeing how someone with Mark’s background will guide this important organization in its next chapter.

The International Institute for Sustained Dialogue has announced the appointment of Mark J. Farr as its new president.  Dr. Harold ‘Hal’ Saunders, Institute Founder and senior U.S. diplomat in the Arab-Israeli peace process and the Camp David accords, will remain chairman of the board.

President Mark Farr, 53, is a former president of Capitol Hill’s Faith & Politics Institute, a Senior Director at President George H.W. Bush’s Points of Light Institute, and National Faith Director at General Colin Powell’s legacy foundation America’s Promise.

“The transformative power of this unique, life-changing approach can make a key difference: in our communities, in every campus and corporation, on Capitol Hill — anywhere where Americans are tired of our embattled civic space and want a more harmonious approach,” Saunders said. “It’s time for a change. We are thrilled that Mark will help lead us in that direction.” Learn more about Mark Farr’s experiences and background.
