NEW! Full-day Dynamic Governance intensive

On the final day of the 2012 Conference (Monday, September 3rd), we’re excited to offer a full-day workshop on the decision-making model Dynamic Governance (also known as sociocracy) at nearby retreat center Sophia House. This intensive, titled “Organizing How We Live and Work: An Introduction to Sociocracy,” will be hosted by Sheella Mierson and Ron Czecholinski of The Sociocracy Consulting Group as well as by Ted Millich, videographer, and will go from 9:00am until 4:00pm. (Note: those who attend this event will miss the final conference site events of “Mock-upy,” lunch and our Closing Circle ceremony. A separate lunch will be provided at Sophia House.)


Dynamic Governance is based on a combination of principles that provide a solid foundation for effective, efficient, and enjoyable governance for any community or organization.Sheella and Ron will also lead shorter workshops on this subject during one of the conference’s standard structured workshop sections on Saturday or Sunday as well as during our Open Space portion of the conference on Sunday afternoon.


For conference attendees, this workshop is being offered on a sliding scale of $30-$60. For non-conference attendees who are simply interested in learning about DG, we are asking for between $75 and $150. If you’re interested in attending, please pay what you can for this incredible opportunity to hone the communication and decision-making style of your group. You will probably never find a day-long workshop on sociocracy for so low a price anywhere else!
