Recap of the NCDD Confab Call with Pete Peterson

We had another great Confab Call event last week with NCDD member Pete Peterson of the Davenport Institute. Pete shared some very interesting insights and lessons that he learned from his recent run for Confab bubble imageCalifornia Secretary of State last year in a bid to become, as he calls it, the state’s “Chief Engagement Officer.”

It was an inspiring conversation in many ways, and after listening to Pete, there very well may be a few more NCDD members thinking about using their public engagement backgrounds to run for office!

NCDD members who missed this event can watch the recording by clicking here. We also encourage you to check out some of our past Confab Calls for more great conversations and ideas.

  1. Roshan: I dont know if I can still view a webinar that you posted about on April 29. 2015. It was along the lines of running for office on a public engagmeent platform by Pete Paterson. Thanks in advance

    • Hi Paco,
      Thank you for checking on this. We’ve actually now made access to the NCDD Confab Call archives a direct benefit of membership, so the link is no longer active (we’re working on updating the posts right now). If you’re interested in this and other Confab Calls and Tech Tuesdays, I would encourage you to consider joining NCDD – you can look at our different membership options at ncdd.org/join. Our live events remain open to all, so please also check out ncdd.org/events for more information on upcoming calls!

      • Thank you so much Courtney. I will bring this consideration and option to my supervisor so we may determine when and how we may join NCDD. And I will check the events page too. cheers, Paco
