NCDD's Three-Year Strategic Plan

Bibliographic Details:

National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation, January, 2007.


The NCDD staff, Board of Directors, Steering Committee, and membership all participated in a collaborative visioning and planning process to provide us with clarity about NCDD's objectives, vision, resources and strengths, and a blueprint for effectively incorporating all of these things into our decision-making process. Our Strategic Plan is the result of this process. For an organization that is being pulled in dozens of different directions due to the varied needs of our members, our field of practice, our communities and humanity in general, this plan will help ensure that NCDD develops into an efficient, forward-thinking organization.

Funds from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation enabled us to work closely with Cathy Flavin-McDonald of the Leadership Research Institute to answer the question "What is the vision of what NCDD can and should be, and how can we get there from here?" We are indebted to both the Hewlett Foundation and to the Leadership Research Institute for their roles in enabling this plan to come into fruition.
