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 ...

2014 Lawrence Cooke Peace Innovator Award

Innovation can be defined as something that has been or is innovative in terms of a new practice in ADR or application of ADR practices in a new area, setting or population. NYSDRA membership is not required. 


2014 Andrew Thomas PeaceBuilder Award

Awarded to an individual or organization that has promoted the field of ADR. Selection of recipients is based on such criteria as promoting the welfare of society as a public official, community volunteer or social service organization in support of a peaceful community, and advocating for peaceful means for resolving conflict.
