Attached is the agenda for an upcoming 1 ½ day conference for which the Ruckelshaus Center is among the supporting sponsors. The topic is important and timely, and the speakers/panelists terrific. This conference on October 10 and 11 will incorporate interactive polling of attendees throughout the agenda, to gather insight on key themes and take-aways from the presenters. That insight will inform discussion at the end of the conference on recommended next steps and action items that will be widely disseminated. The conference will be a perfect lead-in to the annual conference of the National Coalition for Deliberation and Dialogue, which is being held in Seattle beginning October 12.
