Dear Southern California Friends,

Golden West College and Cal State Dominguez Hills are collaborating to offer a
course in Negotiation/Conflict Resolution. It’s a 3 credit course taught by a
wonderful Cal State Dominguez Hills faculty. It’s only $10.00 and you’ll learn
many hands on negotiation skills from a highly professional educator. Please take
a look and let me know if you’re interested. Also please pass it on to your
friends and people who you think might be interested. We need to know about the
enrollment as soon as possible to keep the class open.
If you or someone you know may be interested, please contact Fran Faraz at [email protected] ASAP.

Doug Crocker

Here’s some great news for D&Ders in California…

Common Sense California is offering $125,000 total to municipalities, school districts, and non-profits that wish to engage the public in policy decisions through their new “Citizen Engagement Grant Program.” The grants are divided into two levels and will be awarded in two timeframes. CSC is offering four “Common Sense Grants” up to $25,000.00 each for use in developing campaigns that involve the public around issues pertaining to city/regional and/or K12 policy. Applications for these grants will be received through September 12, 2008, with recipients notified in early October. “Catalyst Grants” in amounts up to $7,500.00 will be awarded on a rolling basis, beginning in late June.

Hi all, I thought our California members might be interested in the fact that the city of Menlo Park is looking for a Community Engagement Manager to develop, support and implement the City’s community engagement efforts with the goal to create meaningful opportunities for community members to have a voice in City decision-making.

I just put the announcement in our main blog. Here’s the url:
