NCDD: Taking Dialogue & Deliberation to Scale

NCDD was off to a good start yesterday with a pre-conference session on Taking Dialogue & Deliberation to Scale, by Ashley Boyd and Janet Fiero of AmeriaSpeaks.

Some of the topics that we covered:

  • AmericaSpeaks methodology
  • 7 key principles to large-scale townhall meetings
  • AmericaSpeaks’ Voices & Choices project in Northeastern Ohio
  • How to develop trust
  • How to sustain citizen engagement

I gained many valuable insights (and took many notes, which I hope to post later in a more digested version).
