Call for 30th DRC Conference Proposals

The Florida Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) 30th Annual Conference will be held at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando on August 11-13, 2022. DRC is asking for submissions for workshop proposals and to become part of the conference faculty. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) professionals play a major part in enhancing access to justice by offering parties an opportunity to minimize the time and money they spend interacting with the court system and by modernizing the facilitation process by using technology. Mediators also promote public trust and confidence in the court system by maintaining education on high standards of professionalism and ethical behavior when assisting parties in settling their disputes. This conference, now in its third decade, provides an annual forum for enhancing your skills and knowledge regarding ADR, especially as our world continues to demonstrate a need for professionals who can promote civil discourse when presenting options to resolve disputes. Consider training your fellow mediators by sharing the latest in your experience. I have presented here in the past and encourage you to do the same. If your workshop submission is selected, you will be asked to present twice during the conference. The deadline for submission is February 25th and workshop selections will be confirmed in early April 2022. You will receive a full conference registration waiver, and if applicable, a second presenter will receive $50 off registration fees. You will receive a confirmation email after you submit the form. If you do not receive a confirmation email, the form was not successfully submitted. The DRC recommends gathering all information required prior to beginning to filling out the form located at here--
