The Center for Dynamic Community Governance

We had a wonderful Saturday morning at Greenbriar with Judye Hering of CARES and Sharon Johnson of the GAIL program. A big thank you to the Greenbelt City Council for supporting this year long effort to enhance access to Greenbelt services and programs. A big thank you, too, to the Old Greenbelt Theatre for providing amazing door prizes in the form of theatre tickets and a family membership.
We value inclusion, transparency, and creativity. Our mission is to inspire community groups to embrace conflict to reach their fullest potential. A unique approach, dynamic community governance uses circular power and consent decision making to inspire transformative organizational change.
We provide:
  • The Dynamic Community Governance approach to Basic Meeting Management. Registration required. Let us know of your interest.
  • Training on Advanced Facilitation, Coaching and Implementation, and Organizational Analysis. Classes are provided periodically and on request. Let us know of your interest.
  • We invite you to a free monthly one-hour Intro most 2nd Sundays of the month normally from 1 - 2 PM.
  • Free monthly two-hour Community Circle for those who have already taken CDCG basics class: A place to ask questions, learn new skills, network, and get help with implementation. Meets most 2nd Sundays of the month from 2-4 PM.
