Save the dates! October 26-28, 2014
This year we hit the road during peak fall foliage season to the Embassy Suites Hotel in Syracuse, NY.
This year's theme is "Peace by Piece" which will showcase the diverse types of dispute resolution we represent and how we all collectively work together towards achieving peace in our families, communities, businesses, and the world.
The conference will feature informative workshops, collaboration sessions, professional development and a few fun surprises. Registration opens late Spring 2014!
We are currently accepting workshop proposals from anybody who wishes to present as well as award nominations ...
