Joint Northern California chapter meeting of the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) and the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation (NCDD).

There's significant overlap in interests, tools, and experiences, and we're hoping to broaden our local network of local public participation, collaboration, and communication focused professionals.
We plan to bring in food and drinks and accept small donations to cover the cost. We expect that this event will mainly serve as a meet-and-greet between the two groups and that we can think about future opportunities for collaboration, tools-sharing, and other structured meetings.
Please let us know if this date works for you, and let us know if you have any questions about this upcoming event -- we're very excited to get together!
