Welcome

Request for Proposals:   I can relate! Skills, Ideas, and Models for Engaging Differences.

The Relational Practices Task Force of the ABA DR section is seeking proposals for participation in our telesummit in September, 2018.

A telesummit is an on-line conference, a series of speakers, workshops, and panels of experts organized around a specific theme.  Our theme is I can relate! Skills, Ideas, and Models for Engaging Differences.  

Programs will be offered for about two hours a day for five consecutive days. There will be around 20 programs over the course of the week. Each offering will be 6, 18, or 30 minutes long, offering a rich collection of topics and speakers.   Content will appeal to a broad audience: attorneys, law students, ombuds, mediators, facilitators, doctors, business people, and peace builders in other industries.

Registration will start in early July and the fee is expected to be about $25 with generous scholarships for those with financial hardship.

Some programs will be pre-recorded while others will be live. During the week, participants may engage in some live interactive sessions in real time. We will also create a Facebook group for on-going interactions.
