Planning is well under way for the Alberta celebration of International Conflict Resolution Day on October 19th, 2017.
We are asking all conflict resolution professionals who support dispute resolution practices in our province to host an event to mark the day.
You may have your own idea about how you would like to celebrate, or you can use our one-hour workshop "Why We Jump to Conclusions and How to Avoid It". Currently, we are in the process of finalizing our training material; however, we wanted to gauge interest of those wishing to facilitate a session (please see workshop description attachment) and send a SAVE THE DATE so you can prepare well in advance of the big day. We will be sending a final call out to facilitators in August/September.
We will holding a Train-the-Trainer workshop on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, from 1:30pm-3:30 pm in person in Edmonton (Commerce Place, 16th Floor, 10155-102 Street) or via live meeting web conferencing. If you are interested in attending, or obtaining a training package (power point, etc.) when it is finalized, please contact Tara Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please note: If you are interested in facilitating a workshop but do not have a venue or audience, please let us know and we may be able to set you up with a corresponding contact in your area.
You will find details about how to host an event and additional ideas on our website: www.conflictresolutionday.ca/get-involved. If you choose to host an event, please let us know so that we can promote your event on our website. Please provide your event details at http://www.conflictresolutionday.ca/events.html
We hope you will promote Conflict Resolution Day through your websites, social media, and newsletters. You can also connect with us through our Twitter page at @CRDayAB.
And finally, our website will have a page of alternative dispute resolution organizations and resources for the public to use. Please let us know if you would like to be included on this list by sending your organization's name, location, website address (or email or phone number), and a one line description of the services available to the public. You can also send this to Heather Ehlers at email@example.com or reach her by phone at (780) 415-6243.
We encourage you to share this invitation with any organizations within your network that support dispute resolution practices.
