Leaning in to this moment: Helping our communities envision an intentional future

Earlier in the pandemic, NCDD hosted conversations to help the dialogue, deliberation, and public engagement community explore how to respond to the needs arising immediately in our own communities. These conversations primarily focused on how to continue our work in a virtual format and how to help our communities stay connected while physically distanced. Now, two months into this experience, we would like to launch a conversation on what we are learning about our communities, and how we might help community members recognize what they see as important to sustain or nurture going forward.

NCDD is excited to announce our May Confab will focus on this discussion. The Confab will take place Wednesday, May 27 at 1:00 PM Eastern/10:00 AM Pacific. Courtney will present this session with NCDD Board Member Lori Britt. Register now to join us for this call!

In this interactive session, which is free and open to all, participants will share what they are noticing about their communities during the pandemic and what topics they want to engage around further. More specifically, we’ll discuss: What are you noticing about your community that you want to make more space for as you go forward? What are you noticing that is essential and needs support going forward? We’ll share some of our reflections as a group, and then break into smaller groups to discuss different topics of importance to our communities. 

We hope that this session will be a jumping off point for many of us to engage our own communities around the issues that matter most to them. We’ll keep in touch as see how things go, and how we might learn from each other!

Join us to share what you’re observing and what you’re hoping for for your own community! Let’s plan for what comes next. Don’t miss this opportunity – register today to secure your spot!
