Save the Date! NCDD 2014 is set for Oct 17-19 in DC Area

It’s time to save the date for the 2014 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation! We’re excited to announce that our next national conference will take place in the DC area October 17-19, 2014.

Check out the little “save the date” video I created this morning…

Thank you to all 92 of you who provided input on our final venue contenders. You helped us decide on the Hyatt Regency in Reston, Virginia for next year’s conference location. Though Reston is a little ways from DC (20 miles), people are excited about the warm and spacious venue, the incredible room rates ($124/night plus tax!), the free shuttle from Dulles airport, the cool location, and the metro stop that’s opening soon in Reston.

We think the pluses far outweigh the minuses, and appreciate all of you helping us think through this important decision. Photos of the Reston Hyatt are up on the Facebook page here if you’d like to check them out.

We’ve also just created a Facebook “event” for the conference, which will be a great place for you to stay updated on the latest details on the conference as things develop. Visit www.tinyurl.com/ks4dr8g to indicate that you’re “going” or “maybe” going in order to stay updated.

    October 2014 no longer feels that far away! People can feel free to start sending me material for the guidebook… 🙂 Just kidding.
