To learn about other NCDD members (there are over 1,240 of us now!), find members in your state or city, etc., visit the NCDD members network at www.ncdd.org/members.

And to see if your membership is in good standing, search for yourself in the members network and look at what’s in the Member Type field in your profile. If it says “lapsed” or “member” (as opposed to supporting, sustaining or org member), upgrading or renewing your membership. You can also email office manager Joy Garman at joy@ncdd.org if you have questions about your status, need payment instructions, or want to change the info on your profile page.

    Glad to be re-joining, but I haven't been with The Mediation & Training Collaborative in almost 10 years. I'm affiliated with Quabbin Mediation, the Jewish Dialogue Group, the USPS REDRESS Program and work as a government, education and non-profit consultant.
