We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Conflict Dynamics and Mediation Practitioners Conference!

As always, the conference will be an excellent place for you to learn about the new developments with the products and programs, meet our staff, exchange ideas, best practices and tools with other practitioners, and learn tips on how to market your own business.

Along with a keynote address, we will continue our tradition of offering informal roundtable break-out sessions. Please let us know some conflict topics that are most relevant to you right now. We will offer more than one session for each topic so that you can be a part of multiple discussions.

We will conduct certification programs for both the CDP and EMP during the week of the conference.
