Florida Dispute Resolution Center Accepting Proposals - TIGHT deadline
The Florida Dispute Resolution Center is taking workshop proposals for their 2009 conference. The conference is in August in Orlando, FL and is aimed mostly at mediators (although the mediators are often lawyers, arbitrators, mental health professionals, etc. as well).
Here is the page with more info on the conference http://www.flcourts.org/gen_public/adr/ourconf.shtml.
The attached pdf is the proposal form for anyone who is interested. (A pdf version for those with special needs is also available).
This is our 18th annual conference and there is generally a turn-out of about a thousand attendees. Multiple workshops are held simultaneously so attendance at each workshop will vary.
Elizabeth Roach encourages any of you with ideas to share to submit a proposal. Susan Daicoff and Elizabeth held a workshop last year and likely will again this year.
Final submission date on the form is Feb. 20 but contact Elizabeth if you want an extension. Her work email is roache [at] flcourts [dot] org and is the best way to reach her regarding the conference.
