There are some excellent mediation Conferences coming up:
Northern Ireland Mediation Symposium (Belfast, Sept 21st)
The purpose of this Mediation Conference – the ‘Northern Ireland Mediation Symposium,’ is to bring everyone with an interest in mediation in Northern Ireland together. Discussion will take place on how to drive mediation forward into the mainstream of dispute resolution. The Symposium is also designed to help you understand how to implement a mediation process into your organisation as well as to help upskill those who are already mediators.
Association for Conflict Resolution 2011 Annual Conference (October 12-15, San Diego, CA)
On behalf of the Association for Conflict Resolution, you are invited to connect with the ACR family and friends in the dispute resolution community, as we gather in San Diego to celebrate our 11th Annual Conference and Exhibition. Our conference theme – Many Paths, One Destination – honors the many diverse paths our members have followed to find their place in the conflict resolution world. While recognizing the diversity of our members and their fields of practice, our conference theme acknowledges our shared vision of a more collaborative, peaceful, and civil society.
The ACR conference provides a unique opportunity to connect with prominent leaders and successful practitioners from every segment of the dispute resolution field. This year’s conference will feature miniplenary panels on hot topics, as well as more than 70 workshops, 10 pre-conference skills training institutes, and 18 professional interest section sessions. In addition, the conference offers high-caliber keynotes and plenary sessions each day.
