    • Friday, September 01, 2017

    The ADR Institute of Canada is calling for nominees for the Lionel J. McGowan Awards of Excellence in Dispute Resolution.

    The awards are named in recognition and honour of Lionel J. McGowan, the first Executive Director of the Arbitrators’ Institute of Canada. The presentation of the McGowan Awards will take place at the Institute’s Annual General Meeting to be held in St. John's,  Newfoundland, October 18-20, 2017.

    There are two awards: one which recognizes outstanding contribution to the support, development and success of the ADR Institute of Canada, and/or development of alternative dispute resolution nationally, and one which recognizes contribution to a Regional Affiliate and within a Region.

     

    Regional Award of Excellence
    This award is for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the development and success of the Regional Affiliate of the ADR Institute of Canada, either by a short-term exceptional effort or through constant contributions over a long period of time, or has contributed significantly to the promotion and development of ADR within the region. Note that simply being a member for many years, being on a board or committee for many years, or carrying out one’s own ADR practice do not apply toward the award.

     

    National Award of Excellence
    This award is similar to the Regional award, but given for contributions to the ADR Institute of Canada. A candidate’s contributions to the support, development and/or progress of the ADR Institute of Canada and its policies and programs, and to promotion of ADR on a national scale, would be relevant. Professional ADR teaching, hearing ADR cases and other ADR practice activities do not qualify. Similarly, simply being on the Board of the ADR Institute of Canada does not qualify unless it included major contributions to the Institute through development of the Institute’s structure, National-Regional relationships, national programs or materials, funding, or other significant Institute initiatives.


    Deadline
    Nominations will be accepted until Friday, September 1, 2017.

    You are encouraged to submit nominations at any time prior to this date.

    Please send nominations in the form of a letter explaining why you feel your nominee should be recognized, to the McGowan Nomination Committee at the ADR Institute’s national office, by fax or email.

The Commissioner will speak about the role of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner in upholding Alberta’s three access and privacy laws, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP), the Health Information Act (HIA) and the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). The Commissioner will also provide an update on some recent cases of interest, as well as issues and challenges arising.

    Presented by Alberta family Mediation Society

    This one-day course will be a great jumping off point for those just starting out in the industry, or will compliment and improve your current mediation business practices.

    Topic areas will include:

    • Holding Clear Intention
      • The value of knowing why you’re really doing this work.
    • Implementing Solid Infrastructure
      • Choosing tools and processes that let you focus on what you do best.
    • Identifying your Target Market

    • Connecting with your Clients
      • Finding them, issuing a compelling invitation and working from where they are.
    • Engaging Responsive Mentoring
      • Where will you turn when you have questions or concerns or need some new ideas?
    • Finding Trusted Collaborators
      • You’re part of a process and those other players can make all the difference.
    • Practicing Impeccable Self Care

    You’ll spend many days with people in trauma; caring effectively for you is caring effectively for them.

    Mediators, Arbitrators, Lawyers, Psychologists, Social Workers, Coaches, and Parenting Coordinators in private practice will find this workshop practical, creative and highly valuable*.

    Presented by Cannabis at Work

    Day One Conference (8am-4:30pm): 

    Medical marijuana is a rapidly changing topic and has great implications for workplaces. Managing medical marijuana in the workplace is complex and requires specialized knowledge of medical cannabis, workplace policy and case law. Approaching recreational legalization adds another layer of challenges. This conference brings together a team of workplace experts to ensure you have the tools to mitigate risk in your organization.

    Day Two: Master Class (10am-3:30pm): 

    The Master Class is a small group, facilitated “working” class. SPACE IS LIMITED. In this workshop we will do a deep dive on your Drug & Alcohol Policy to ensure it is cannabis compliant. Participants will leave with a new draft of their policy. Participants will also leave with business processes for managing medical and recreational cannabis disclosures.

    You can register for day one, or day one and two combined. Live stream is only available on day one.

    “What flows through your mind sculpts your brain. Thus, you can use your mind to change your brain for the better – which will benefit your whole being, and every other person whose life you touch. By changing your brain, you can change your life.”

     ~ Rick Hanson, Author of the Buddha’s Brain.

    In this workshop, you will learn to connect the dots between your brain’s wiring, the latest neuroscience and mindfulness as a way to create change that will transform your life. Mental activity sculpts the brain and it’s no joke that we are creating our realities in every moment with every thought. Through mindfulness, you can begin to release the grip of old patterns of response and form new pathways of positive habits and behaviours.

    Come and engage your whole brain – that’s right, both your left and your right brain, in a mindful workout. Here’s what you can expect:

    • Learn the mindfulness technique of self-observation
    •  Gain an understanding of the brain’s negativity bias & how to work with it
    • Learn the keys to positive neuroplasticity and the brain’s ability to re-wire itself
    • Become witness to your own "fight or flight" patterns of modern life and navigate back to wholeness
    • Learn the ancient science of our head, heart and gut brains

    Join me for some brain changing, life changing fun!
