Don’t forget to register for next week’s NCDD Confab Call with Tina Nabatchi and Cynthia Farrar! The Confab will take place next Thursday, February 23rd from 1:00 to 2:30 Eastern (10-12:30 Pacific). An impressive group of over 20 leaders in our field have already signed up for the call.

Tina Nabatchi is an assistant professor of public administration at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. Cynthia Farrar is CEO and Executive Producer at Purple States LLC.

NCDD’s “Confab calls” are opportunities for members of the NCDD community to connect with each other, hear about exciting projects in our field, and explore our field’s most pressing challenges.

Register for February’s Confab call today, at www.ncdd.org/community/confabreg-feb2012, to receive the call-in details.

Next Thursday’s call will focus on some of the things Tina and Cynthia learned while working on their 2011 report “Bridging the Gap between Public Officials and the Public.” Among other things, the report explores what state and federal public officials know and think about public deliberation — and yielded some provocative results! (Download the full report here or see a longer summary on the NCDD site here.)

And please note that we’ll be trying something new during the last 15 minutes of this Confab… calling on NCDD members who have announcements of interest to their colleagues. Let us know on the registration form what you might want to share, so we can determine who to call on at the end of the call. Announcements about upcoming events, job or funding opportunities, facilitation gigs, new and interesting programs… it’s all good!
