The ACR 2019 Annual Conference Call for Proposal is Now Available – Have You Submitted Your Proposal?

Everywhere you look, the deep divide that has taken hold of our country is evident. Story after story point to news of a deeply divided nation. Politics have pitted family members against each other. Children are being taken from their families. Body cameras and mobile devices position to capture tense police-community interactions. And, the phrase "active shooter" is part of our normal vocabulary. Hate has become acceptable, some say even fashionable. What is our responsibility as conflict resolution practitioners to help Heal The Divide?

At the ACR 2019 Annual Conference, we want to explore this question from every angle and from every conflict resolution process. What can we learn from research, and how can we apply what we have learned? How can we help our families, our communities, and our nation begin to Heal the Divide? The theme for the 2019 Annual Conference is Heal the Divide: A Focus on the Role of ADR Practitioners in a Divided Society.

Just Confirmed:ACR’s Environment and Public Policy (EPP) Section will be having focused training at the Annual Conference. Section Leaders have decided not to have their Section Conference in 2019. They will be having workshops as part of the main conference. If you were thinking about submitting a proposal for the Section Conference usually held in the Spring, you are encouraged to submit proposals using this process.
