CoalitionThe NCDD Online CommunityResourcesNews & Events2002 NCDD Conference
The first National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation was a highly participatory, high-energy event which brought dialogue and deliberation leaders together across models, topics, regions, applications and philosophies for a unique learning, networking and planning experience.
Participants take notes during the final plenary session, the Next Steps Forum run by the Study Circles Resource Center.

The conference emerged out of a need for D&D; practitioners and theorists to share strategies, experience one another's models and help mold the future of our field. A large coalition of leaders throughout the D&D; community collaborated to plan and design this exciting event.

The event was funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and took place at the Radisson Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia from October 4 through 6, 2002.
