Call for workshop proposals: ACR's New England Chapter seeks submissions for May 2007 Annual Conference

NE-ACR Annual ConferenceThe New England Chapter of the Association for Conflict Resolution (NE-ACR) is seeking workshop proposals for its 2007 Annual Conference to be held on Thursday, May 31, 2007, at the Boston University Corporate Education Center in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts.

This year's theme is Justice: Conversations for the ADR Community. Leading that conversation is internationally known dispute resolution scholar and practitioner, Lela Love, professor of law and director of the Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Professor Love will also be leading a full-day Advanced Training on Friday, June 1, 2007.

NE-ACR's annual conference attracts dispute resolution practitioners from throughout New England and beyond. It's an ideal opportunity to network, make new friends, and meet old ones.
ADR practitioners--mediators, arbitrators, facilitators, educators, trainers, ombuds, negotiators, and anyone else whose work involves conflict resolution--are invited to submit their proposals for consideration.

The Call for Presentations Form is available for downloading here in two formats:

- Word format
- PDF format

Proposals are due by Friday, March 23, 2007, by 5:00 p.m. EST. If you have any questions at all, please email Kelly Thompson, NE-ACR board member and conference organizer, at kthompson@cmcri.org.

(And of course please feel free to pass this on!)
