ICDD to Host Basic Facilitation Workshop in March 2013

The seventh ICDD Facilitation Workshop at Kansas State University will be held from March 4 through March 6, 2013. This popular workshop has been held as far away as Wisconsin, Georgia and Saskatchewan. Workshop participants will increase their knowledge about how to plan and lead public meetings, moderate discussions of complex issues, and guide groups to mutually acceptable decisions. Additionally, participants will focus on how to gather a community around an issue and manage conflict.

The general public is invited to attend, and all are welcome.  This offering will address the meeting leadership needs of extension professionals, public librarians, educators, administrators, and non-profit leaders. Faculty and students are encouraged to attend as well. The workshop will equip participants with skills necessary to organize, facilitate, and assess community events that address critical local issues in positive, satisfying ways.

 The workshop will be held in the International Grains Program building, 1980 Kimball Avenue (across the street from the Bill Snyder Family Stadium) in Manhattan, Kan.
