Dear Fellow Dispute Resolution Committee Members:
I want to welcome you as committee members to the 2016 - 2017 fiscal year.
We have an exciting year planned and I look forward to all of you supporting and contributing to our committee. It is only through our collective efforts that can we create a richly rewarding experience for us all.
In addition, the following are the dates and times for our committee teleconferences:
Thursday, September 15, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., Eastern/2:00 p.m., Central
Friday, October 21, 2016, at 11:00 a.m., Eastern/10:00 a.m., Central
Thursday, December 15, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., Eastern/2:00 p.m., Central
Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 3:00 p.m., Eastern/2:00 p.m., Central.
The dialing information to access the teleconferences is:
Dial-In Number +1 (866) 646-6488 - Conference Code 1885350536.
You are all invited to attend our meetings, to participate in our conference calls, to volunteer your time and good efforts for the planned CLE programs, and to offer new ideas for additional programming. We are also looking for authors to submit papers for our newsletter, as we are planning for three publications for this fiscal year.
As I mentioned above, the success of our committee depends on the efforts of our members. Alternative dispute resolution is a growing legal field. More and more litigators are turning to alternative dispute resolution options, and more people are looking to become alternative resolution facilitators, such as mediators or arbitrators. As members of our committee, we can all benefit from the collective experiences of our fellow members, and that only comes with active group participation.
We have an exciting year plan, and we welcome your participation.
Perry S. Granof
