Admin: Invitation to Join NCDD

Hi, !  I am the office manager for the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD.org).  Our director, Sandy Heierbacher, asked me to send you an invitation to become a member of NCDD. Our members are some of the most active, thoughtful, and influential people in public engagement and group process work, and Sandy thought you would fit right in!

Joining NCDD means becoming part of an active, supportive network of over 1,800 groups and professionals (www.ncdd.org/map) who bring people together across divides to discuss, decide, and act together on today’s toughest challenges.  NCDD serves as a gathering place, a resource center, a news source, and a facilitative leader for an active community of practice centered around the practices of dialogue and deliberation.

NCDD holds national conferences every 2 years (our 2012 conference in Seattle brought together 400 people (there’s a nice little video up at http://tinyurl.com/kmbxgnk that gives you a sense of it), but we’ve managed to create a very dynamic, active community of practice between our convenings as well, using online tools and lots of engagement opportunities like our monthly “confab calls.”

If you’re interested, please complete the membership form at www.ncdd.org/join. You can become a Supporting Member of NCDD for only $50/year, or a Sustaining Member for $125/year.  If you’d like your organization to be listed as a member, dues are $150/year for organizations.  If dues are a challenge for you or you’d just like to try NCDD out for a while, you can join dues-free as a regular individual Member.  Member benefits are outlined at www.ncdd.org/join as well.

You can learn more about NCDD at www.ncdd.org/about or look over our latest projects, activities and partnerships at www.ncdd.org/tag/ncdd_projects.

Let me know if you have any questions about membership.  I hope you decide to join NCDD; it would be wonderful to have you as a member!

Warm regards,

Joy Garman
