Register for the Citizen University 2015 Conference

We want to encourage our members to attend the 2015 Citizen University annual conference this March 20th-21st in Seattle, Washington if you can. Citizen University conferences are impressive gatherings that do a lot to help galvanize leaders from many different sectors, and we know NCDD members will be able to both contribute and gain a lot by attending.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Citizen Power,” and here’s a bit of how the organizers describe it:

The Citizen University annual National Conference is like no other civic gathering in America. Hundreds of changemakers, activists, and catalysts show up to learn about power, build their networks, and recharge their sense of purpose. They come from across the country, the political spectrum, and a wide range of domains — from immigrant rights to national service, voting reform to veteran re-integration, civic education to Hollywood and tech. They are you.

Our theme this year is Citizen Power, particularly in the shadow of Ferguson and Staten Island, and the 50th anniversary of so much of the Civil Rights Movement. This is a time when citizens are solving problems in new ways, bypassing broken institutions, stale ideologies, and polarized politics. We are part of a movement to rekindle citizenship in America. We hope you’ll join us!

Regular registration for this year’s conference is $200, but you can still take advantage of the $175 early bird rate or even cheaper rates if you are a student, veteran, senior, or volunteer. The early bird registration cut off is February 28th, so make sure to register ASAP.

The conference has an impressive lineup of presenters and speakers and will be attended by lots of movers and shakers, including our own executive directory Sandy Heierbacher. If you’re planning to attend this year, make sure to send her a message at sandy@ncdd.org letting her know you’re interested in meeting up with her and other NCDD members who will be in attendance.
