“Come On Down!”

Okay – this isn’t The Price is Right although the price really is right as you will see; plus you don’t have to be from Florida to participate. Of course, if you are from Florida you already know you can submit workshop proposals – and please do.

The Dispute Resolution Center is now accepting workshop proposals for its 16th Annual Conference for Mediators and Arbitrators, August 23 - 25, 2007 in Orlando, Florida.

The goal of the Conference is to provide educational opportunities that will be of interest and benefit to professionals involved in the field of conflict resolution. Workshop proposals should be designed to enhance knowledge and skill levels for the seasoned practitioner.

Presenters selected for participation will be given a reduced Conference registration fee of $50.

Complete the Call for Proposals application and mail, email or fax it to the Dispute Resolution Center postmarked on or before February 1, 2007 [it’s not that far away]. A separate application must be submitted for each workshop. If you have questions, email Kimberly Kosch at

A change from prior conferences is a revision in all individual workshops which will be 2.0 CME credits (as compared to 1.8 hours previously). This change will allow mediators to complete their 2 hour CME requirements in one workshop rather than having to take one plus workshops to get their 2.0 hours.

As in the past, the conference will be held at the Rosen Centre Hotel, 9840 International Drive, Orlando, Florida 32819 and the DRC Lodging Rate is $99.00. Here’s the number to call to make a reservation 1-800-204-7234.
