Amy - Thanks for your response.  So the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) World Conference is a long-standing, global professional development tradition designed specifically for communication practitioners. The event typically draws about 1,200 attendees from around the world.  The theme of this year's conference, #IABC17 Global Business: Lead Communication; Make Real Impact speaks not only to the conference, but also to the association.  It represents our mission to deliver the greatest impact on career development in a meaningful and creative environment, as well as our aim to demonstrate what great communication can and should be achieving for our organizations. 

The conference will take place in Washington D.C. from June 11-14, 2017. Our World Cafe would be on Monday, June 12.

Amy - thanks very much for the welcome note.  I sent an inquiry into the world cafe web site yesterday - chairing a communication conference in Washington, D.C. next June and we are planning a World Cafe for one of our general sessions.  I am looking for a team of facilitators in the greater D.C. area.  Do you know anyone and, if so, can you make a recommendation?  I would be so grateful, Sarah

Dear Amy, 

Thank you for the warm welcome. It is really good news that World Cafe at University level is also an interest of others at the community. It will be great to share experiences and co-create with this worldwide community! 

Kind regards,

Thank you for your warm welcome. A group of us are hoping to host a World Cafe in Philadelphia in 2017 on the topic around our aging world and ageism.  We have much planning to do.  I am very excited to learning how to create this learning community.
