Make a Mid-Summer Resolution to Support Your Profession: Volunteer with Us!

Monday, July 24, 2017 11:34 AM | Anonymous

Consider volunteering for any of these important opportunities and enhancing your professional qualifications.  Earn CEE points and network with your peers.

ADRIA is a member-driven professional association that relies on an active and engaged membership to sustain its momentum. As the summer months pass, and we begin thinking about our Fall endeavours, consider dedicating some hours to a worthwhile project in support of the ADR profession. ADRIA and others offer a wealth of opportunities to engage with your peers, enhance your profile and advance the profession. 

What areas have caught your attention recently? What areas do you think need attention? Contact us to discuss where your talents could be put to the best use or express interest in any of the suggestions below. We are always happy to hear from you. Write a note to the Board at board@adralberta.com or contact the Executive Director, Paul Conway at 780-433-4881 ext 111.

Advancing the interests and potential of ADR practitioners in Alberta lies at the core of our mandate as YOUR professional association.
 
Here are some areas where your talents could be put to use:
