The 2006 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation will take place in San Francisco, CA August 4-6, with pre-conference trainings on August 3rd. If you are dedicated to solving group and societal problems through honest talk, quality thinking and collaborative action, we invite you to join us at this innovative gathering. The conference will be held at the Renaissance Parc 55, a beautiful hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Members of the rapidly-growing dialogue and deliberation community regularly engage and mobilize millions of people across the globe around today's critical issues and NCDD conferences build community in and provide direction for this growing field of practice-a field that has the potential to solve many of society's most pressing problems.

Our conference provides opportunities for networking, experiencing different methods, hearing from leaders, learning about new research, and exploring key issues through high-quality workshops and session which, this year, will focus on a variety of important topics such as Jewish-Palestinian dialogue and the use of dialogue and deliberation in the U.S. Department of Defense; along with innovations such as OrangeBand, Conversation Cafe, and Dialogue Mapping.

Speakers in our Reflective Panel will include Juanita Brown, The World Cafe; John Gastil, University of Washington; Chris Gates, Executive Director of PACE; William Isaacs, author of "Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together,"; and Leanne Nurse, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Registration is only $450, so be sure to register soon. The 2006 conference is funded, in part, by the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Whitman Institute, and by leading dialogue and deliberation organizations including the Forum Foundation, the Public Conversations Project, and the Study Circles Resource Center.
