2018 Alberta ADR Symposium
Join us at the 2018 Alberta ADR Symposium!
May 15 & 16, 2018.
A Government of Alberta Dispute Resolution Network partnership with Alberta’s Non-Profit ADR community.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has enjoyed remarkable success in Alberta. Over the past 35 years, ADR has left its mark on the courts, regulators, government, businesses, work places, families, and civil society.
In 2018, we will celebrate this success and ensure ADR achieves its potential as the preferred means by which Albertans resolve conflict.
Delegates will be invited to harness their collective wisdom to shape the future of ADR in Alberta. Our goal is to see ADR widely recognized as the preferred option for resolving disputes. The Symposium will also celebrate key milestones in Alberta’s ADR community. Our successes speak to the tenacity of the ADR community and its dedicated practitioners.
The opening keynote session will focus on celebrating what we have achieved in the ADR community, recognizing how far we have come, and recognizing new opportunities for the future.
Break out sessions will include keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops and will move from:
- Who we are? Practitioner development
- Where are we? Environmental scan; Visioning the future of ADR in Alberta.
- What keeps us up at night? Scenarios for reflection
- Where are we going? Innovations in dispute resolution.
- How are we doing it? Breaking barriers; Strategies to raise the profile of ADR
The Closing Plenary will be a half-day participatory session to create a Common Agenda for ADR in Alberta.
Additional, in-depth training will be available in our Pre and Post Symposium Training workshops May 14 and May 17.
Early Bird Rate: $249 (by April 12) Regular Rate: $299 (registration closes May 9)
