Call for Session Proposals and Papers for the 2004 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation

The 2004 NCDD conference will take place in Denver, Colorado, October 23-25 at Regis University, with a day of excellent post-conference trainings on October 26. If you are dedicated to solving group and societal problems through honest talk, quality thinking and collaborative action, this gathering is for you!

With ample time for networking, skill-building, hearing from some of the key leaders in the field (including Jim Fishkin, Glenna Gerard, Harold Saunders and others), and (of course!) engaging in dialogue and deliberation, practitioners, scholars, trainers, artists, activists and students will enjoy a one-of-a-kind gathering.

The 2004 conference will build on the success of the first National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation, which took place in Alexandria, Virginia in October 2002. As you may know, the 2002 conference was a groundbreaking, unforgettable gathering – the first significant gathering of dialogue and deliberation practitioners, scholars, trainers, artists, activists and students from all of the various streams of practice that exist in this emerging field.

Here’s what two prominent members of the dialogue & deliberation community had to say about the 2002 conference and NCDD in general:

Tom Atlee, President of the Co-Intelligence Institute, says “the 2002 NCDD conference was the most amazing conference I've ever attended…. This is a big diverse field, bubbling with vitality. And NCDD is bringing it all together.”

Martha McCoy, Executive Director of the Study Circles Resource Center, says “In its 2002 conference, NCDD created an inviting space for a wide variety of dialogue and deliberation practitioners/thinkers. Since then, it has cultivated a broad and emerging field, by making it possible for diverse threads of practice to learn from each other. Its mode of working is respectful, inclusive, and practitioner-oriented. Everyone who believes that dialogue and deliberation are key to transforming people, relationships, and society -- including political systems -- can benefit from being part of NCDD and its next conference.”

The 2004 conference will focus on three broad questions: "How can we have a greater collective impact on the challenging issues of our time?", "How can we develop intelligently and wholeheartedly as a community of practice?", and "What do we need to know and do individually to enhance our capacity to do this work?"

If you are interested in leading an experiential session or presenting a scholarly paper at the NCDD conference, now is the time to submit your proposal. Applications for break-out sessions are being accepted until July 30. You can also register for the conference, read about our stellar post-conference trainings, become a Co-Sponsor of the conference, and more, at You can also contact conference director Sandy Heierbacher at [email protected].
