Dear ACR Members, Colleagues and Partners:
It is my pleasure to extend you a personal invitation to attend the ACR's 2016 Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. We are planning a wonderful time of learning, connecting as well as an opportunity to collaborate on future opportunities for growth in the conflict resolution community.
The theme of this year's conference is Principles into Practice, reflecting an emphasis of our commitment by conflict resolution practitioners and the Association for Conflict Resolution to the practical application of our guiding principles for our respective processes. We wi examine and expand our shared understanding of foundational theories like self-determination, safety and access to services. We will look at emerging trends and best practices and opportunities for enhancing our practice through skill building and adhering to the appropriate standards of conduct. The goal of the 2016 Annual Conference is to provide each attendee high quality sessions that focus on theory, application, ethics and best practices, no matter their experience level.
Some of the things being planned to accomplish these goals include:
Plan now to join your fellow ADR practitioners and be a part of this comprehensive event. Register today. I look forward to seeing you in Baltimore.
Donzell J. Robinson
President, ACR Board of Directors
